Friday Night – Romance on the Rails

The Piney Woods comes alive with the luminous glow of moon-kissed skies on this popular DATE NIGHT train ride offered on select Friday evenings May through September. The romance of the rails is enhanced as daylight gives way to twilight.  The late evening return to the depot reveals a plethora of romantically twinkling stars across the broad Texas sky. With the path of the train miles from the lights of the nearest towns, the skies will be dark enough to see even some of the fainter constellations not seen from the city. Experience the the velvety, inky dark of a waning moon combined with the total absence of city lights.
