Tecumseh and Clinton have been linked by the railways since 1853. Enjoy the beauty and wildlife of Lenawee County from a different perspective. Climb aboard the 1926 South Shore passenger car, or you can hop on a 1959 gondola car for an open air ride. Both cars are guided down the tracks by a 44 ton locomotive built in 1943. You'll be shouting "All aboard" before you know it!
The Southern Michigan Railroad Society makes all this possible by running the volunteer, interactive railroad museum. The railroad is open from mid-May through late September.
Fall colors in Lenawee County may be viewed as the train winds south from Tecumseh during the month of October aboard our "Fall Color Tours." The railroad, almost 14 miles long, crosses the River Raisin twice as it winds its way through scenic countryside from the station at 320 Division Street in Clinton to the railroad's depot at Raisin Center.
Call the Southern Michigan Railroad at 517.456.7677 for all the details.
