The Great Train Robbery

« All Events

A Bonnie & Clyde Adventure

Travel back in time to 1934 for an adventurous 45-minute steam train ride on the rails through scenic Amish Country. An A-list celebrity is planning to travel in style at the railroad, complete with high fashion, sparkling jewels, and bountiful riches. But there have been alleged sightings of dynamic duo, Bonnie and Clyde, along with their band of wily cohorts. Their exploits have captured the attention of the American public. The infamous pair are considered “armed and dangerous,” and their reported actions have been highly erratic. Watch out!

All real money “donated” to our robbers will support the Clinic for Special Children!

This interactive ride will rob you poor! Don’t worry though – you can always get some “valuables” for the family at the East Strasburg Station following the wild adventure, as well as photos with the cast. Bring your camera. Pay attention. The action may happen anywhere!

Thanks to all who rode our April & July 2019 Great Train Robbery excursions! With your contributions, we have raised $1,548.38 for the Clinic for Special Children!
