Visit the Hoffman Grist Mill in Enterprise

The Hoffman Grist Mill adjacent to our tracks in Enterprise is UP AND RUNNING!  Various types of flour from the Grist Mill

are available to purchase.  Be sure to visit the Grist Mill during the train layover in Enterprise.  (More information HERE.)

We hauled some cattle!

To inaugurate the Chisholm Trail anniversary event over Labor Day weekend in 2016 we hauled some longhorn cattle to replicate the many head of cattle that were loaded on trains in Abilene for shipment east after the herds were driven over the Chisholm Trail from Texas.  We did it again on September 2 and 3, 2017 for the 150th Anniversary of the Chisholm Trail!  If you missed the Chisholm Trail Anniversary events on September 2 and 3, 20117; you missed a spectacular weekend packed with unending entertainment.



We appreciate your business!

We also appreciate our volunteers who make it all possible!
