Latest Rider Experiences

50th Wedding Anniversary!

We were in the observation car on the 29th of February, celebrating our 50 anniversary.

I felt special from the day I bought the tickets from Debra and arranged for our meals the next day with Kasey. We arrived early Saturday morning and visited with Kasey while picking up our tickets. She gave us a lot of information about the railroad.

We boarded the observation car around 11AM and were warmly greeted and welcomed aboard by Lavelle the attendant. He was terrific during the trip keeping us all informed and entertained. His bartending skills are second to none. Jaci was also a great help to us during the trip. She was cheerful and courteous.

The equipment and facility was well kept, clean and pleasing.

Our whole experience with y’all was one we will never forget. Thank you for making our special day so enjoyable.

First Time Trip for Our Grandsons

This was a first time trip for our grandsons. They had a blast picking out pumpkins to decorate and were super excited to ride a real train! We were in car 42 ~ Joyce was fantastic! There was dancing in the aisle and candy passed around. This was a first trip for us but definitely not a last trip!!

Our trip was wonderful!

The wait staff, Lavell, Charla, and Miss Joyce were exceptional. Can’t recall our Conductor’s name but he was absolutely delightful. The “supervisor” Lorenzo was on point ensuring everyone enjoyed themselves.
Highly Recommend this Train excursion. If you like Trains, you will love this one. We look forward to going again. Thank you Texas State Railroad and all personnel for making our Train excursion exceptional!!
