It is a pleasant ride on the Lumberjack Steam Train. The vintage coach gives you a great view of the colored leaves, the air is crisp and clean, and suddenly, there is gun fire and the sound of horse hooves pounding the ground along the train. A robbery is in progress. What to do?
Sit back and enjoy it!
On Saturday, September 30, the last run of the Lumberjack Steam Train will be leaving the depot on Highway 8, just west of Laona. It is the culmination of Fall Festival, and it is a special day, because the cowboys are visiting. To be sure, they will rob every run of the Lumberjack Steam Train all day long. Don’t worry, these guys are actually harmless, but they are riding beautiful horses, dressed in period clothing and brandishing vintage firearms, all loaded to the hilt with blanks.
