Northern Central Railway of York’s Annual Marquee Event

Take the tracks back in time for this mid-October western weekend with the cowboys of the classics.

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.

Cowboys were referred to as “the most reckless class of outlaws in the wild country.” Our locomotive, the No.17, is exactly like those that ran at the time of expansion west and it creates a unique stage for cowboy robberies and learning about the cowboy lifestyles.
