|Ghosts & Trains|
NOTE: We will NOT be conducting Ghost Stories or Ghost Train on Saturday, May 18 during Jefferson Train Days.
The Ghost Train is running every Saturday evening. Join us for free ghost stories at the depot before the Ghost Train.
See our calendar page for pricing and schedule.
We offer FREE Jefferson Ghost Stories at the heated/air-conditioned depot before the Ghost Train. Our storyteller shares legends of Jefferson and East Texas ghosts and a story or two that will make you reach for your loved ones! Historic Jefferson Railway was nominated as one of the Best Excursion Railroad Theme Trains for its Ghost Train by the readers of Cowcatcher magazine for the 2009 and 2012 Gold Rail Awards.
Bigfoot (also known in these parts as the Boggy Creek monster) has been sighted running along the railroad tracks as the sun begins to set. Is the tale of the Bigfoot sightings fact or fiction?
The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy website says “Jerry Hestand, Mark Porter and Charles DeVore investigated a number of cases in Marion County from reliable trustworthy people in or near these remote bottomlands. It is their assessment that it seems highly likely that events have been reported accurately”.
The train rolls right by the home of the Boggy Creek monster as depicted in the upcoming horror movie, “Boggy Creek”, filmed in Jefferson and Uncertain. The movie is loosely based on the old Big Foot or Sasquatch legends, says Brian T. Jaynes, director and producer. Click here for more information or view the movie trailer below.
So, are the sightings real or a spoof to enhance your rider experience? You’ll have to ride the train to find out!
