More about our Western Action Shoots.

The Great Lakes Freight & Mining Co. also staged a monthly train robbery reenactments on the Carthage-Knightstown-Shirley Railroad. The reenactments took place on the third Sunday of each month from May through September until the CKS ceased operations at the end of August 2013. Reenactors must be members of GLFMC or the National Congress of Old West Shootists (NCOWS) to participate. More about our Reenactments.
