And now the train will be displayed near the town square in Canyon, Texas.

As evening gives way to night, a lone horseman appears on the cliff above Pioneer Amphitheatre in Palo Duro Canyon.  He carries the Texas state flag.  Fireworks sparkle, the music grows, and a cast of 60 burst on the stage telling the struggles and triumphs of Panhandle settlers in the 1800s.  It’s the outdoor musical “Texas”-  a summer tradition in the nation’s second largest canyon for 48 years.
