Ride with the Engineer of the Texas State Railroad

Savor the day with a steam engine ride-along where you’ll be seated between the engineer and conductor inside the cab of one of the Railroad’s classic Old Girls. You’ll start the day dressed in complimentary TSR safety gear, ready to assist the engineer and conductor in preparing for departure.

When you return, you’ll receive a photograph of you and the crew along with a Certificate of Completion, numbered and signed by the General Manager to commemorate the perfect day.

CAMERA USE – Due to the safety-sensitive nature of the operating crews responsibilities, the use of any type of electronic device, including cell phones, is prohibited while the train is in motion. Pictures may be taken only when the train is stopped and  engineer has given the OK to do so. The guest must always follow crew instructions.
