The second annual Railroad Revival Tour featuring Willie Nelson and Band of Horses has been announced.

Last year, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, as well as Mumford & Sons, participated in the first annual Railroad Revival Tour. As a part of this particular tour, the bands traveled via railcars pulled by two locomotives to their shows. Willie Nelson, Band of Horses, John Reily & Friends and Jamey Johnson have confirmed to ride the train in October for the tour’s second round of shows.

Beginning in Duluth, Georgia and ending in Oakland, Calif., the train will hit six different cities altogether.
