Riverside & Great Northern Railway

The R&GN is a 15-inch gauge railroad living museum offering fun for young and old. Ride our live steam trains along a 3 mile roadbed winding through scenic canyons, beautiful wooded areas, and majestic rock cuts beside the Dells of the Wisconsin River. Watch the locomotive being turned on a hand operated turntable at Western Springs, and turned again at the final stop at the Hyde Park depot.
