The Conch Train is a beloved Key West staple and one of Florida's most popular attractions. For a great tour of Key West, hop aboard this charming reminder of Henry Flagler’s Overseas Railroad, the engineering miracle that brought rail passengers to Key West via an extension of the Florida East Coast Railway.
Called by some Flagler’s Folley, the Overseas Railroad only operated from 1912 to 1935. But the intrepid little Conch Train has been making its faithful rounds of the city without fail since 1958, and is still running daily for your enjoyment.
Sit back and relax as you take a 75-minute journey through the exciting history of Key West and visit the city’s top modern-day attractions.

We had a wonderful afternoon. The jokes were corny but the scenery was great. I had my elderly mother with me and the crew could not have handled her better. They brought a step for her to make it easier for on/off transport and stored her walker for us.
Tour was great but there was a ton of confusion in trying to get on the train. We pre-purchased tickets and were told to stand in line to get the actual ticket. Got in line and then got pulled out and told to wait for someone to bring us tickets. We waited about 15 minutes and then had to go find the person. Took about 20 minutes to get on a train.
