The first weekend in June gives locals and visitors a chance to travel back in time when covered wagons and the new railroad were the principle means of transportation along the trails that cut through the Fairbury area in southeast Nebraska. Ride on miniature railroad, enjoy exhibits and musical entertainment, flea market and model train displays at the Historic Rock Island Depot.
