All Aboard

Excitement awaits!


Let's face it: Your lifestyle isn't exactly action-packed. In fact, the most daring thing you did last week was go to the grocery store without makeup on — and nobody noticed but you. It's time you added some adventure to your life, and we know where you can find your thrill: on a train. But not just any old train. You need to board the St. Louis Iron Mountain & Southern Railway. The station is located 100 miles south of St. Louis off I-55 in Jackson, Missouri (at the intersection of Highways 61 and 25; visit for directions), and this diesel-powered choo-choo offers all kinds of exhilarating weekend excursions. The Bonnie and Clyde Train Robbery is perhaps the most adrenaline-fueled of all the events, and you can be a part of the one-and-a-half-hour crime ride starting at 1 p.m. today. Your ticket to board will run you $9 to $16; call 800-455-7245 to save your spot — and get excited!
