You can hire a steam train for your group or for making a movie! Also rail hand car rentals and ready package tours are possible!

At Jokioinen Museum Railway you can simply hire your own steam train! You can select the best day and time for you and your group. You can also decide where to board the train and where to go. And if you wish you can ask for special carriages to be included with your train! The steam locomotives are operated from May until end of September.


An affordable way for a small group to travel on a charter train is a charter train pulled by a diesel locomotive. Diesel locomotive-powered charter trains are possible during the snow-free season, as the track is usually not plowed in winter. For the trip, you can choose from the options below, either a full train, a dining car trip or, in summer, a barbecue train.
