The LM&M Difference

There are very few places like the Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad.

Our goal is to deliver an experience worth remembering to passengers hailing from communities that have forgotten how exciting trains can be.


It can be difficult to properly interpret railroad history in a static museum. Trains are monstrous, loud, and kinetic. They are something that needs to be experienced, not just seen. As a museum in motion, we believe that keeping our vintage train moving and full of passengers is important for historic preservation.

Operating in suburban Warren County, we can't take you through scenic mountain passes or over lush river valleys. However, what we lack in scenery, we make up for in friendly service and historic value. Our staff and volunteers work hard to give you the best possible train ride experience.

When you hear a kid say, ‘today is the best day ever’ you remind yourself why everyone puts in so much effort running a slow train going nowhere.
— Will G., General Manager

Come take a ride with us and travel over a unique former narrow gauge rail line completed in 1881. Experience riding in lovingly restored vintage railcars hauled behind a historic diesel locomotive.

We are the only operator of family friendly train excursions in southwest Ohio. Our team is proud to give the public, especially families with young children, opportunities to safely interact with a real working train.

It is not common for a railroad to run trains simply for the fun of it, but that is exactly what we do.  We want nothing more than for you to have a pleasant time and maybe even learn something new along the way. This is what makes us different.
