And when he does, the plot begins to unfold. The “bad” guys are planning to steal a lockbox of gold from the Sheriff and his posse. After the train leaves Roxbury, the villains make their move, but are thwarted by the long arm of the law, until the train pulls into the station in Arkville.
And then … well, I don’t want to spoil it for you. Let’s just say my nine-year-old really got into it, to the point where he was trying to tip the authorities off to the whereabouts of the gangsters. (Think Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding — the show, not the movie — on rails. Or something like that.)
The Great Train Robbery runs through Sept. 10. Even if you don’t like reenactments, take this train some other time and enjoy the scenery. It’s definitely worth the drive.
