The City of Gallatin is holding a “Decoration Day” at the Gallatin City Cemetery on May 21st from 2 – 4 pm. Decoration Day is a tradition in many southern cities where members of the community come together to clean and decorate tombstones and to connect with prior generations. American flags will be provided to decorate the graves of Veterans, as the event is just prior to Memorial Day. UPDATE - James Story and friends will perform live at the Cemetery!

The Mackle and Wilson Gangs are on the loose again!  
Rumors are they will attempt to hold up the Excursion Train en route to Watertown and then maybe even raid Watertown itself!  Here’s your chance to ride along and see how true these rumors are.  You’ll ride a traditional passenger train of cars from the last Golden Age of the passenger train in America!  All stainless steel heated/air-conditioned cars provide you with the experience that the American traveling public had in the late 1940s and 1950s, pulled by classic EMD passenger diesel locomotives.  The trip and the action in and near Watertown will be a memorable experience for the entire family!  There might even be a shootout in Watertown amongst the US Marshall, and the Mackle-Wilson Gangs!
Refreshments And Souvenirs For Sale On Board The Train!
