All Aboard America’s Favorite Movie Train - "The Orange Blossom Cannonball" on the Tavares, Eustis & Gulf Railroad.
Your journey begins from our centrally located depots in either Mount Dora or Tavares. Take the train, stay to eat & shop, and catch a later train back to your starting point. Your excursion is a 1 hour and 45-minute roundtrip between depots. You will travel in vintage coaches pulled by our 1907 wood-fired steam locomotive (most Saturdays) or our 1941 GE 45 ton center cab locomotive (Wednesday – Friday & Sunday). Ride in the actual train cars that stared in over 20 movies, including: “True Grit”, “Appaloosa”, “3:10 to Yuma”, and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?.” Ride in the actual coaches where famous stars such as Robert Redford, Johnny Cash, and George Clooney once performed.
