Historic Jefferson Railway Salutes National Day of the Cowboy

 

Historic Jefferson Railway salutes “National Day of the Cowboy”, July 25 and 26, 2014 as they recognize pioneering men and women who helped establish America’s frontiers.  Enjoy the rough and ready cowboys of the Lonely West Traveling Gun Show complete with cannons, gunfights and a train robbery.  Limited seating, so get your tickets now atwww.JeffersonRailway.Com or call 866-398-2038.

 

Start Friday at 7:00 p.m. with free cowboy ghost stories at the air-conditioned depot, and then jump on the Cowboy Ghost Train at 8:00, an antique narrow-gauge train that traverses the Piney Woods along the Big Cypress Bayou in the deep dark woods. The open-canopied observation cars offer a perfect view from every seat.  Be careful out there.  Everything you see might not be part of the show – if you feel a cold chill, that’s a ghost, for sure.

 

On Saturday, the Historic Jefferson Railway and the Lonely West Traveling Gun Show do repeat performances of the Cowboy Train at 12:30, 2:30, 4:30 and 8:00 at 400 E. Austin, with freecowboy ghost stories at the air-conditioned depot at 7:00 p.m.  Come out for a ride on a restored gas-powered Plymouth Locomotive built in 1964.  The excursion train circles the Piney Woods on a five-mile track along the Big Cypress Bayou where you see the beautiful views of the wetlands and wildlife as well as remains of many sites from the 1880’s still visible along the track.  Don’t let those cowboys drag you off the train!

 

Jefferson, Texas is nestled deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas and seems frozen in time.  It is a charming town and an elegant reminder of a bygone era. There are over a hundred buildings in the city with historical markers. Many historic homes offer bed and breakfast accommodations.  Dozens of other historic buildings house museums, craft and antique shops and restaurants.  So come Dine, Shop & Stay, in Jefferson, Texas.
