Historic Jefferson Railway

I have some great news! The Historic Jefferson Railway is back up and running!!! The boiler has been repaired and the train is as good as new. Here is more information directly from the good folks at the Historic Jefferson Railway.

The Historic Jefferson Railway recreates the Golden Era of Steam railroading with day trains each Saturday at 2:30 and 4:30 through Labor Day weekend. Steam hissing, whistle blowing and pistons chuggin, Old Engine #7 will take you on a scenic trip along the Big Cypress Bayou. As you roll through the history laden Piney Woods, you’ll view a Confederate Power Magazine and traverse the site of one of the oldest, historical towns in Texas.

Friday and Saturday evenings features the infamous Ghost Train at 9:00 which carries you deep into the dark woods along the Bayou, sharing tales that will make you reach for your loved ones!

Start the evening with free Jefferson Ghost Stories at the historic “haunted” train depot. Our story-teller will keep you at the edge of your seat as we tell stories about famous and not-so-famous Ghosts of Jefferson and Northeast Texas.

The Railway has become a part of the thriving community of Jefferson sponsoring major events throughout the year that bring over 20,000 visitors to Jefferson. Riders look forward all year to Terror on the Bayou Fright Train, Rail of Lights Christmas & New Year’s Train as well as Diamond Don’s Riverport National Vintage Motocross and the Trammel’s Trace Rendezvous.

The train was built in 1964 for Six Guns Territory in Florida and moved to Jefferson in 1986. It is a Crown Metals reproduction of the 1870’s American class 4-4-0 steam locomotive christened the Robert E. Lee. The open car coach seats still carry the custom medallions cast into them designed especially for the Six Guns amusement park.

Historic Jefferson Railway is located at 400 E. Austin in Downtown Jefferson, Texas. For information on pricing, schedule and events, please visit www.JeffersonRailway.com or call 866-398-2038.
