The Wisconsin Great Northern Railway is owned by the Andersons. They run a delightful dinner train with the capacity for you to sleep aboard the 1950’s era train. The train trip is about 2 ½ hours and passes through lovely Wisconsin woods and along a lake.
Overnight in a traditional Pullman Double Bedroom, with upper and lower bunks, including a toilet annex with a drop down sink. Showers are available at the end of each sleeping car.
Or you may choose the roomier First Class bedroom, containing a double bed and private bath with toilet, sink and shower. You will also have exclusive access to the First Class formal dining room, the First Class private lounge and the open platform on the end of the train.
At the finish of the train ride you can continue to enjoy beverages and a fire ring at the station (weather permitting) before turning in to your bedrooms for the night.
In the morning a light breakfast is served before you depart the train.

Group Special for ABD members:
If you would prefer to spend the night at a hotel rather than on the train, we can stay at a hotel in Spooner, also owned by the Andersons. We’ll car pool from the Twin Cities to Spooner, WI (an easy 2 ½ hour drive). Once at the hotel, we’ll have things to see and do in Spooner. At 4:30 a bus will take us to the Train Station (5 miles away) and we’ll board the train with the rest of the passengers. We’ll enjoy the same train ride and dinner and after the train returns to the station, we’ll bus back to the hotel. The balance of the evening is up to us or we can call it a night. Breakfast is on our own with this option.
- The price for this option is only $169.00 per hotel room FOR 2 PERSONS.
If we have a large enough group, the Traditional and First Class B&B prices will be given a slight discount. Or if you are a single traveler the cost will be slightly reduced to recognize that there is only one dinner included. The cost for the rooms themselves remains the same whether there is one occupant or two.
How To Reserve Your Spot
We MUST reserve this immediately as the train is very popular. If you want to join this fun women-only excursion, complete the sign up information sheet immediately or as soon as you possibly can. Find a fellow Member to join you or you can bring a friend. Once total numbers are known, we’ll let you know the final pricing. Pre-payment is required at that time and payment information will be provided.
ABD Members will be given preference for their selections.
