ABOUT


The Joliet Rocket will depart the Joliet Transportation Center and spirit passengers to a private reception at LaSalle Street Station in downtown Chicago. These four-and-a-half-hour roundtrips will feature a variety of opportunities for passengers to see and hear the excitement of a 1940s steam locomotive as a part of their trip!


During the approximately two-hour layover, the platforms and pavilion will be transformed into an exclusive, vintage-themed occasion at LaSalle Street Station for passengers. We encourage guests to dress for the occasion in their best 1940s or 50s look.
