Witness the exploits of the infamous Jesse James and Younger Gang, a well-known group of 19th-century outlaws! During your trip to Seitzland and back, experience train travel as it was in the Wild West when this notorious group held up trains and passengers. The modern-day reenactors are using their skills for good, robbing the train for donations to the Southern York County Pantry! Come out for a good time and a great cause!

Due to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, food banks across York County are in need of our support to help provide free groceries to individuals and families in need. The NCR and Outlaws and Peacemakers have teamed up to help restock the food banks’ shelves so they can help struggling families with their daily needs as well as provide them with Thanksgiving and holiday meals. Below is the list of needed supplies the gang will be “robbing” the train for:
• Canned vegetables, beans, and fruits of all kinds

• Ramen noodles
• Tuna
• Spam
• Instant potatoes
• Spaghetti sauce
