Independence Day Celebration

Every year, we put a train together to help celebrate the country's Independence Day holiday. The operations are run between the Mount Pleasant Independence Day parade and dusk, when hundreds of visitors start filing into the park in anticipation of the fireworks display.

The 14 pulls the train up the hill west of the North Station.
