Welcome to the Cadiz Southeastern Railway, Cultural Center and Museum – The Mojave Desert Steam Train
The Cadiz Southeastern Railway (CSER) is a proposed new cultural, educational and entertainment attraction based in the scenic valleys of the eastern Mojave Desert. This new tourist railway, and associated museum and cultural center, is being developed in conjunction with a new water conveyance service along a portion of a former Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF) line, now operated by the Arizona and California Railroad, between Cadiz, California and the towns of Rice, California and Parker, Arizona.
The CSER will operate historic steam locomotives and vintage passenger railcars that have been modernized with the most up-to date environmental and mechanical technologies and safety appliances, while maintaining the “look and feel” of their early twentieth century construction.
Once up-and-running, CSER will be the longest, regularly scheduled steam excursion train in the United States and one of the few dedicated to the desert experience.
The information on this website presents our current vision for the operation, but it may change as we work towards the start of service. Please check back here or at www.cadizinc.com for updates.
