Mark Twain Zephyr Rebuild Outreach Tour & Book Signing Event


Are you interested in the history and status of the Mark Twain Zephyr?

The Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad purchased the historic CB&Q Mark Twain Zephyr, which used to pass through Mount Pleasant are who were interested in both the history of the train and the refurbishment. The railroad’s owners decided to send Robert Tabern, Director of Passenger Development and author of history book series about the Mark Twain Zephyr, on a 13-stop speaking tour along the original route of the Mark Twain Zephyr!

They will be offering a FREE one hour presentation to the public at the Mt. Pleasant, IA Amtrak Station on Sunday, July 18 at 2:00PM.

Check out the full press release and photos of the progress here as well as this video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_KYLiTURvA&t=25s
