While the #2 Steam Locomotive is down for annual inspection and repair, enjoy a two-hour round trip from Tavares to Lake Jem and return. Our current locomotive is a 1959 Diesel.
Visit beautiful Tavares, Florida to begin your journey back in time. Our station, on the edge of lovely Lake Dora in Wooton Park, is where you’ll get your souvenir ticket and board the train for your big adventure to Lake Jem. During this 2 hour, 16 mile round trip, you will travel in our 1915 vintage coaches.
We don’t just rekindle memories, we create them! Our staff is dressed in period costumes and you are stepping back in time. Take photos, enjoy the stories and narration of the Tavares, Eustis & Gulf Railroad Conductor, and return with priceless memories to share for a lifetime.
