Deer Creek Express

This approximately 90 minute trip offers incredible views of the Wasatch Mountains, the wide-open vistas of Deer Creek Reservoir, and the beautiful Heber Valley. The Deer Creek Express departs from the depot, follows the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir to Decker Bay (about 7 track miles), and returns. 

The railroad is operated much like the typical short line railways that could be seen in many parts of the Utah and all over rural America during the “Golden Years” of U.S. railroading, approximately 1920-1950. As such, the Heber Valley Railroad attempts to preserve a slice of Americana that has otherwise disappeared. The train ride and atmosphere of the railroad equipment, yard, and building will hopefully recall a bygone era. For many passengers this will be the first time they have ridden a train. For others, a ride aboard the Heber Valley’s coal-heated coach cars and antique cabooses will bring back pleasant memories of days long ago.

Snacks are available for purchase in the depot prior to boarding and on board the train. 

In order to ensure that the train will have adequate space to accommodate our entire group it is necessary for us to reserve and pay for everyone at least sixty days in advance.  For that reason, we ask that you register and pay as early as possible.

The cost is $22.50 per person and is discounted for us from the standard $25. 

NOTE:  Active duty U.S. military and card-carrying U.S. military veterans ride free on all scenic trains (Provo Canyon Limited, Deer Creek Express, & Lakeside Limited). Immediate families are 50% off. Please call the ticket office for this special.  Please identify as travelling with our group to ensure being seated in our car.
