message from our Founder
The Great Wedding Train is a unique
new way to celebrate your wedding. This is the only true wedding train in
the nation featuring a replica chapel car, custom built to the finest
traditions of the great trains of the past century. We are sure that you
will appreciate our attention to detail and the convenience of working
with your own personal wedding coordinator; I hope that you will find our
website helpful and interesting. We have put together a number of
all-inclusive wedding packages and also allow you the opportunity to plan
your own Custom Wedding Charter.
We are truly excited by the addition
of The Great Wedding Train; we recently completed renovation of our new
chapel car Everlasting and are very pleased with the results.
My wife Mardell and I were the first couple to be married in the
Everlasting on June 5, 2004.
I hope that you will share your
comments and questions with us and drop in and take a ride on the railroad
and a tour of the chapel car if you are ever in Northern Wisconsin.
