Douglas is Jackalope City

All aboard to head north and see trains in action!

About 18 miles north of Douglas on Highway 59, trains can be seen crossing a bridge above the highway.

As travelers make their way toward Bill, which is 35 miles north of Douglas, trains frequent the north-south tracks. The Powder River Basin, located north of Douglas, supplies 40 percent of the nation’s coal.

Those who would like to see trains coming and going from the coal mines are encouraged to venture further north. Forty-five miles north of Douglas, take a right on Antelope Coal Mine Road. Traveling the route delivers a birds eye view of Wyoming coal mining and trains at work.
