 Train tickets are $12, children under six free.

 Tickets can be purchased online at www.JeffersonRailway.com or at Historic Jefferson Train Depot on day of event. 

 Jay Gould Rail Car “Atalanta” is an opulent private parlor railroad car with original elegant furnishings of a mansion on wheels.  It is a Pullman built by the American Car & Foundry Company in 1888.  Check at the Excelsior House for tickets and tour times, or call 903-665-2513. 

 Sunday Social, 1:00-3:00 pm. Come join an old-fashioned Sunday Social at the General Store on Austin Street in downtown Jefferson.  Purchase a root beer float, nostalgic candy and one-of-a-kind souvenirs.   “The Core, Band” with Travis Babb on guitar will be playing outside on the lot next to General Store.  Riverport Ambassadors in period dress make this an event you will want to see.  Free to the public.  There will be plenty of time to visit the Jefferson Train Show and ride the train.  

Jefferson, Texas is a member of the Union Pacific Railroad’s Train Town USA Registry as a part of UP’s ongoing efforts to recognize cities having a historical connection to the railroad.
