2018 Schedule 

 Dates, Events and Pricing are subject to change at any time. 

Events may be cancelled or rescheduled due to weather or maintenance


Enjoy a narrated day excursion running along the Big Cypress Bayou. 

See historic remains from the 1800’s, native wildlife and hear the history of Jefferson.

The regularly scheduled day trains include a stop at Diamond Don Gator Pit to view our daily gator feeding. 

This attraction may not be available during special events or during the colder spring runs. 




10am to 5pm 


Access for Physically Challenged Persons

There are two steps leading into the front lobby of our depot.  There are also three steps leading to the upper area and to the bathrooms.  We do have a ramp that can be accessed at the back of the depot which gives entry to the upper depot level and the bathrooms.  We do have handicapped parking for vehicles on the street near the train.  There are several steps up to our First Class coach.  Some physically challenged persons may have difficulty accessing this coach.  As we are a narrow gauge train, the width of our First Class coach will not accommodate handicapped conveyances.  Some seats in this car face forward and some face backward.  If you have a problem with motion sickness, please call to advise a depot agent so that we can re-arrange the assigned seating to meet your needs.  We can accommodate a wheelchair or similar conveyance in the handicapped area of our open coach.  However, this area must be reserved ahead of time, so please contact a Depot Agent if you need special accommodations.
