All aboard! This summer, travel back in time to the Wild West and experience a Great Train Robbery on the Prairie Dog Central! Get your tickets to ride the rails and enjoy a fun re-enactment of an old-fashioned train robbery, where bandits on horseback or in vintage automobiles storm the train along the line.
Cowboys 'n' Gals
Dates: Jun 29, Jul 13, Aug 3, 31, Sep 7, 14, 28 | Departs: 11:00 a.m.
You will be rumbling down the track hoping that those wretched cowboys and gals are taking a break from their increasingly frequent train robberies. You can feel the tension in the air during this suspense filled trip to Grosse Isle. Keep your eyes open, remain alert and be prepared to hand over any spare change should they strike.
The Prairie "HOG" Train Robbery
Dates: July 26 | Departs: 5:00 p.m.
We are sneaking up the track this evening in the hope that we can evade those blasted train robbers. Here’s hoping that the cowboys and gals have been thrown off the scent by this late departure time. There is a hearty supper of Pork in a Bun and Salad awaiting our arrival at the Grosse Isle Community Hall. Live folk music and circle dance instruction will wrap up this fully interactive trip, before we take a restful journey back to Inkster Junction Station.

P.S. Don't forget to bring some coin. All "stolen loot" from the robbery will be donated to a good cause.
