There are still various travelling circuses if you want to join. They probably just don't travel by train.

Default From The Big Top Into The Big World: A Ringling Ringmaster's Final Bow

http://www.npr.org/2017/05/19/528672...ters-final-bow
Quote:
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has been entertaining audiences for a long time. Its history goes back 146 years to about the time when professional baseball emerged and before Coca-Cola was invented.

But this substantial chapter in American history comes to a close on Sunday. After years of declining ticket sales and seemingly endless conflicts with animal rights groups, Ringling Bros. will stage its final show in Uniondale, N.Y.
I thought the bit (in the radio story) where the ringmaster was sending out head shots and resumes to talent agents was rather poignant.

I sincerely hope that the circus personnel will be able to find other jobs.
