Travel with the Lincolns

Passengers who reserve a ZEPHYR ROUTE SPRING IN ST. LOUIS trip will have the unique opportunity to TRAVEL WITH ABRAHAM AND MARY TODD LINCOLN between Chicago and Springfield. They will be en route to a meeting in Springfield and have ‘booked passage’ on ZEPHYR ROUTE.


Truth be known, Michael Krebs and Debra Ann Miller have been impersonating the Lincolns for several years. You can gain more information about them by checking


Recently Michael portrayed President Lincoln at the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade aboard the Illinois Bicentennial Float. Last February 9th he collaborated with members of the WGN Morning News personalities to do sketches that included Abraham Lincoln.


These quality performers will mingle with Zephyr Route passengers and delight with stories and information about Abraham and Mary throughout their lives. Travelers will be enriched with a greater understanding of each iconic historical person.


If you have not reserved a seat on the Spring in St. Louis trip, now is the time. A limited number of seats are still available. Don’t ‘miss the train’ and don’t miss the experience of meeting THE LINCOLNS!!!!
