Join us on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 at Forest Park for a journey back to the 1930s aboard our streamlined passenger train for The Great Train Robbery – 1930s style.

It’s 1930, and Elliot Ness’ two faithful, undercover FBI agents, known only as Franks & Spatz, are on the heels of two bank robbers on the lam from the hoosegow, Hoptoad Guiseppe and Big Bugs. Expecting the jailbirds to jump the train for a quick getaway, Franks & Spatz start riding local area trains with their dames, Betty & Mills, in order to capture the buggers and return them back to the Big House. What happens next is anyone’s guess.

Tickets required for ages 2 and up. Children under 2 must be held in one’s lap. Entertainment provided by Greg Ryan & Cast. Note: Trains do not leave Forest Park. Trains will travel within the Forest Park facility with short movements. The train will be in motion throughout the performance; however, the train will not travel to another destination.
