Gather the gang and head to Jackson, MO to step back in time with the St Louis Iron Mountain and Southern Railway for a historic and fun train ride pulled by “Pennsylvania Diesel #5898” built in 1950.
Once aboard the train you just never know who you may see lurching behind the trees with all kinds of tricks up their sleeves. The train has been known to been robbed by the famous James Gang, those boys can get the train passengers really rallied up.
However, these robbers seem to be more Robin Hoods than they are thieves, as it appears they rob the rich and pay the poor.
