The History Train Tour

...The shortest railroad in the US, but we're just as wide as all the rest.

Why a train?

Well…Before trains, a farmer’s customers were limited. They sold their crops within a five or ten-mile radius, or put them on a riverboat and prayed that they would make it to market safely. The train brought new life to small towns.  The History Train at The Double T represents the new possibilities not only for farmers but small towns and immigrants alike. Join us on a virtual reality tour and explore what the railroad did for our small communities.
