Presidential Flyer Excursion Train

The SAMShortline Excursion Train  is an unmatched travel experience for you, friends and family. Georgia’s only rolling state park combines the rich history of the area and classic railroad travel with pleasure and relaxation. The vintage train cars vary in ambiance but all provide climate-controlled comfort and large windows to view the passing Southwest Georgia scenery. Three new luxury private cars have now been added to the train to provide a vantage point you’ll find nowhere else.

Your destination, Plains, Americus or Archery- depending on the trip, is rich in history. The town of Plains, home of our 39th President Jimmy Carter, offers an inside look at his campaign and his life and in so doing provides an education in American politics. Archery, President Carter’s boyhood home, also gives you an up-close look at rural life in the early 1900’s. There is so much to do in both places time will fly. Then you can sink back in your comfy seats and enjoy the leisurely return ride.  The ride from Americus to Plains (The “Americus Local”) is a portion of every trip offering passengers a shorter experience.

In addition to the regular trips, SAMShortline will be offering specials throughout the year to include Christmas trains, dinner trains and fundraisers. These events are explained on
