Wild West Express Featuring The James Younger Gang at 1:00 pm
Sep 15, 2018Ride Time(s):
September 15, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Caution: Riders will experience the sites and sounds of very loud, actual gun fire during the ride.
This gang of American Outlaws was well-known in the 19th century. The group included the notorious Jesse James and the Younger brothers. Their infamous group will be robbing the train for trinkets and jewels (provided). Come out for a good time and a great cause! The train will ride to Seitzland, PA and return to New Freedom, PA.
The cowboys will be robbing the train for the Breaking Bread initiative. Armstrong Cable began Breaking Bread 9 years ago as a way to raise awareness about food insecurity and to provide resources for food pantries, soup kitchens and other social services. They accomplish this by collecting food and monetary donations. September is Hunger Action Month, therefore we have committed to “Avenge Hunger” from August 27th through September 23rd. All donations would benefit Mason-Dixon Community Services, which serves southern York County, PA and northern Harford County, MD.
The coaches are pushed and pulled by our diesel locomotive.
This excursion is about an hour long.
Tickets will be available to be picked up at the ticket booth in the back of the gift shop on the day of the trip.
