Sensory Friendly Train

The Quiet Car: Our Parlor Car is designated as The Quiet Car for those who wish to be away from sound and other activities while still enjoying the ride. The Quiet Car will also be a place for any onboard passenger to visit for a moment of calm if necessary.  Neither music nor narration will be broadcast in this designated quiet area.

Sound: If you or your loved one have sound sensitivities, please bring headphones to block-out sounds that may be overwhelming including our train's narration; broadcast in our Deluxe Coach, Dining and Garden Cafe cars. Our crossing procedure will be modified to eliminate the horn.

Touch:  Complimentary coloring books and crayons will be provided to children.  Please bring your sensory toy, fidget, or book to read.  We will do our best to stagger boarding times to alleviate a person’s anxiety resulting from waiting in long lines. If you have a weighted blanket or weighted vest – please know that we invite you to bring it with you.

Smell:  We will turn-off or remove artificial air fresheners from areas used during the event. We will request that staff refrain from wearing perfume or cologne on the day of the event.

Sight: Please bring your sunglasses or a hat if you have light sensitivities.  These may be most useful if you visit the open-air car. Where possible, we will dim lighting or cover intense lighting in the ceiling with fabric during the event.

Taste: We will have our a la carte menu available for purchase while on the train. However, we understand many have special dietary considerations; therefore, an exception has been made. We encourage anyone with food allergies or sensitivities to bring their own drinks and snacks.
