This October experience the autumn foliage of Northern Michigan in style with our annual Fall Color Tours, pulled by a Diesel Locomotive. Take in the color drenched beauty and enjoy a relaxing ride while visiting with friends, playing cards, snapping some pictures, or just settling in with a refreshing beverage and snack from our concessions car.

Once arriving in Petoskey, passengers can take advantage of what this unique town has to offer by visiting the local businesses or grabbing a bite to eat. Information on activities and highlighted destinations will be provided on board the train inbound. The Northern Arrow will depart Petoskey at approximately 5:00pm for the return trip back to Kalkaska.
