Mark Twain Zephyr

Coming in 2024 – The only Shovelnose Streamliner you can ride!

The rebuild of the Mark Twain Zephyr was once thought to be beyond reach, we are proud to give future generations the opportunity to experience this great train.  Guests will experience history in the onboard theater, learn how this train and the entire Zephyr family ushered in the future of passenger trains during the Great Depression in the Becky Thatcher display car, enjoy a beverage in the tavern lounge and maybe even enjoy a fine meal cooked right onboard in the Huckleberry Finn dining car.  This train is certainly something to look forward to!

"Took my 6 yr old grand daughter on Santa train. It was in evening with lots of snow- she believed we were traveling to the North Pole! Pizza was kid friendly plus delicious cookie. Santa and Mrs. Claus very kind! Staff great- whole experience was worth it. Definitely a new family tradition!"
