For a revolutionary July 4th celebration, climb aboard a live steam train as the Historic Jefferson Railway recreates the Golden Era of steam railroading on July 1, 2, 3 and 4. The narrated day tours include a stop at the Diamond Don Gator Pit to view the alligators. Evening trains include a fantastic fireworks show followed by the firing of an authentic replica of civil war cannon – with a surprising Dragon’s Breath display!
The Historic Jefferson Railway will offer a special July 4th weekend as the history of Independence Day unfolds in the narrated day tours on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at 12:30, 2:30 and 4:30 and on Tuesday at 12:30 and 2:30.
Come see the Support Our Troops display that honors the United States Military. The evening train will run at 9:00 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. With whistles blowing and pistons chugging, the live steam, narrow gauge railroad transports its passengers back to the 1800’s on a scenic narrated tour along the Big Cypress Bayou, rolling through the history laden Piney Woods. You will view a Confederate Powder Magazine along the five-mile, 40-minute tour, as well as the historic ruins from the 1800’s of the Clark and Boice Sawmill and the first iron foundry in East Texas.
Bring the RV or tent camp at Diamond Don RV Park, just one mile from downtown Jefferson…
