Train's a Comin' !
You can sense the anticipation. They stand on their tip toes looking down the line. Young boys have their ears to the rails listening…intently… for the “Clack-a-ta-clack.” And they the cry: “Train’s a Comin’!” The year is 1880 as the Southern Pacific heads into Benson, Arizona Territory. Billows of smoke pour out of the smoke stack and drift back over the train. As the train pulls into the station, some folks step down from where they came and others climb aboard for their own travel adventure to some distant place.
The railroads made a difference in Arizona at a time when Arizona’s richness was just being discovered. Bisbee Copper and Morenci Mines each delivered their raw materials via trains. Cattle were shipped from various points both east and north. Logging businesses were able to move large loads quickly and efficiently. Dry goods and other materials could now be freighted to areas hard to reach. The railroad transformed the county and it was a new beginning for an entire nation.

On Saturday, April 27, the event kicks off with the morning flight of AIRSHIPS (aka hot air balloons!). They will fly high above the Calico Mountains and serve as a festive beginning to a memorable day.
Join us as the old meets the new in an exciting day filled with gunfights, period music, quick draw exhibits, panels, fashions and more! The celebration goes all day with performances by Steampunk theater groups, displays of Steampunk art, clothing, literary readings and many vendors sharing their wares. The day ends with live music and dancing in the streets of the old town...just the way it used to be.
