For a revolutionary July 4th weekend celebration, climb aboard an antique narrow-gauge train for an excursion that circles the historic Piney Woods along the scenic Big Cypress Bayou.
The Historic Jefferson Railway will offer a special July 4th weekend as the history of Independence Day unfolds in the narrated day tours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 4, 5 & 6, 2019 with trains departing at 12:30 and 2:30. Come see the Support Our Troops display that honors the United States Military. Active Military personnel ride free.
Historic Jefferson Railway recreates the golden era of railroading with narrated historical day trains. As you roll through the history laden Piney Woods, you’ll view a Confederate Powder Magazine and traverse the site of one of the oldest, historical towns in Texas, with historical ruins from the 1800’s.
Each train ride includes a stop at the Diamond Don Gator Pit to view the alligator feeding. There are great photo opportunities at the depot with one of the baby gators and at the Gator Pit during the feeding.
