The Railroad Museum of Oklahoma is one of the few railroad museums in the nation to conduct all-caboose excursions over the rails. Usually held twice each year, these memorable trips accomodate riders between Enid and Drummond in September (10 miles each way), and Enid and Okeene on a day trip as part of the annual Okeene Rattlesnake Hunt in May (38 miles each way). The train consist is usually made up of eight cabooses representing railroads that served or continue to serve Enid bracketed by Farmrail diesel-electric locomotives.
Many thanks goes out to the dedicated volunteers who organized and worked as train crewmembers. And a special thanks to the personnel of Farmrail System, Inc., without whom the excursions wouldn't be possible.
