Rockin’ The Rails featuring Blacktop Mojo

Texas State Railroad is proud to present our inaugural “ROCKIN’ THE RAILS” excursion featuring BLACKTOP MOJO!!! What could be better than taking a vintage train ride to a private concert with 800+ of your best friends?!?
This roundtrip excursion leaves from Palestine, TX Depot at 5:00pm on September 17th, 2022. We will travel the rails over to our Rusk, TX Depot where we will disembark to rock out with East Texas’ own Blacktop Mojo for a 90-minute live show!
Blacktop Mojo’s fiery blend of sludgy grooves, classic rock guitar riffs, and southern metal shredding falls somewhere between Soundgarden and Lynyrd Skynyrd. With 4 albums, multiple mainstream top 40 chart singles and an energetic live show, Blacktop Mojo has garnered a loyal national following.
We have several seating and pricing options available from our open-air coaches to our private Caboose. We will be offering several VIP packages, some of which include a champagne or cider toast and appetizers upon departure, VIP concert seating, swag bags and even a photo op with the band.
We have a concession car onboard offering snacks, alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase. We will also have concessions available on the grounds. Onboard restrooms as well as an ADA compliant coach are available. Please note that the ADA compliant coach must be booked directly with our reservations desk.  This event is a private event for train excursion ticket holders. General Admission is not available at this time. The concert event will be in an outdoor setting.
