The cowboys carry vintage firearms shooting blanks, and put on quite a show. In addition, some of the re-enactors play the part of other people living in that time period, from the “school marm” to the preacher. All of the regular attractions will also be available. You will experience riding in vintage rail cars or a caboose pulled by a 1916 locomotive that was used to haul logs from the camps and supplies to the lumberjacks. The Steam Train leaves from U.S. 8, just west of Laona at 11 a.m., noon, 1 and 2 p.m., with the last train leaving Camp 5 at 4 p.m. To find out more, call 715-674-3414 or see lumberjacksteamtrain.com online.
