Thank you for your interest in the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. We will respond to your request as soon as possible. If your request is urgent, please call us at 1-800-TRAIN-50.


Join us for a fun-filled evening of murder, mystery and mayhem! It's up to you to solve the mystery as the action unfolds before your eyes.

Intriguing mysteries will be presented throughout the season and you have two choices on where you want to experience the fun! In the Dining Car, dinner will be served on the outbound trip with dessert served on the return trip.  In the Parlor Car, you won't receive a meal but you will enjoy the mystery in the comfort of a newly restored car. Murder mystery trains are pulled by the Diesel Locomotive on various Saturdays and begin in June and run through November at 6:00 PM. The round trip lasts approximately 3 1/2 hours. Advanced reservation with a minimum of 5 days notice is required for Dining Cars. For the Parlor Car, we highly suggest reservations but walk ups are welcome the night of the event if seats remain. 

There is a cash bar on board for passengers to purchase wine and beer as well as soft drinks. Identification will need to be shown at the time of purchase of any drink containing alcohol.

Handicapped seating is available in car #851 and #200. Guests confined to a wheelchair please call our offices to check on availability of seats. All seats in the Parlor Car are handicap accessible. 

NOTE: Murder Mystery shows are designed for an adult audience and may contain some mild adult humor and innuendo not suitable for children. No child fares or menus are provided. Children may ride for the adult fare at parents' discretion.
