Groups & Charters

If you would like to organize a group or corporate outing aboard the Spirit of Jasper, we’re at your service. Please contact Dana Reckelhoff at or contact her at Jasper Park & Recreation Department, 812-482-5959, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to discuss your options.


Group Travel

The train is ideal for celebrating class reunions, anniversaries, weddings, or other group events. Get out of your car and start your Spirit of Jasper experience in Jasper. Leave the “driving” to us and spend more time enjoying the sights, sounds, and camaraderie of your group. Make your event unforgettable.



Charter a Car

A car may be chartered during one of our regularly scheduled runs. At this time, we have two cars available for charter: the Lounge Car 300 and the Club Car 200. Lounge Car 300 can seat 48 people. Club Car 200 can seat 46 people (40 people if a meal is served as six seats do not have a table). The Spirit of Jasper reserves the right to assign a charter group to a specific car.

The Parlour Car 400 may not be privately chartered as it services both other cars.
