All Aboard the Orange Blossom Cannonball

Central Florida’s Historic Train on the Tavares, Eustis & Gulf Railroad

season-passesYour journey begins from either Mount Dora or Tavares.  Take the train, stay to eat & shop, and catch a train back to your starting point.  Our stations, are located in the heart of downtown Mount Dora and Tavares!  Your excursion is 90-minutes roundtrip between depots. You will travel in vintage coaches pulled by our 1907 wood-fired steam locomotive (Saturdays) or our 1941 GE 45 ton center cab locomotive (Wednesday – Friday & Sunday).  Ride 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 posed.

Wheelchair Lift Fund

Here at the Tavares, Eustis, & Gulf Railroad we are striving to install a wheel chair lift on one of our cars to make our train completely handicap accessible. Unfortunately, this is a very expensive addition to the Orange Blossom Cannonball and we are asking for donations to help us achieve this goal.
