Northern Central Railway of York’s Annual Marquee Event

Transport yourself to the Wild West in this event celebrating cowboy and cowgirl culture! Ride along with our No. 17 locomotive with “the most reckless class of outlaws in the wild country,” and prepare for an experience straight out of the most beloved cowboy films -- compete with train robberies, shootouts, live performances, and more!

This celebration of cowboy culture immerses visitors in the most unique movement of the 1800s. The Wild West movies from the 1950s to today romanticize the life of the cowboy and cowgirl and make us all want to be participants in the cowboy life.
