St. Marys, 1000 Osborne St, St. Marys, GA 31558
Immerse yourself in history, fun and adventure as you travel the rails from Historic St.
Marys, Georgia, through scenic woodlands and marshlands. Your 1 hour and 15 minute excursion brings you face to face with yesteryear, nature, and some great entertainment. Whether you’re riding on the open-air rail cars or experiencing an authentic locomotive or caboose ride, you never know what you’ll encounter along the way!
Did you know that less than 6% of America’s population have ever even ridden a train? Through the St. Marys Express, St. Marys Railroad—in partnership with St. Marys Little Theatre and Theatre by the Trax—hopes to bring the thrill of a train ride to everyone.
Trains certainly have been an important part of American history. It was 1908 when St. Marys rail service first began. Back then, the trains were pulled by woodburning locomotives. Today’s St. Marys Express is powered by a General Motors Electro-motive Division GP-16u locomotive built in 1952. You’ll be moving at a whopping 10 miles per hour in your adventure through woodlands, marshlands, and across the picturesque Dark Entry Creek. Along the way, our narrators will treat you to a glimpse into yesteryear. Your midway experience may include live scarecrows, hoboes, zombies, cowboys, pirates, or even Santa, depending on the excursion you choose.
So, welcome aboard. We’ll see you soon!
