Speakeasy Special

All Aboard!

Attention all you Bootleggers, Flappers, Raccoon Coats, Bathtub Gin Bathers, Flagpole Sitters, and Marathon Dancers!!! Join us as we journey back in time 100 years to an era of prosperity, indulgence and carefree living on the “The Speakeasy Special.” Dress to impress in your preferred 20’s attire!

Our adventure begins at the PALESTINE, TX rail depot on June 8, 2024, where we will promptly board the train at 5 pm. We will traverse the tracks to our Rusk, TX Rail Depot whilst enjoying freshly made appetizers and listening to the sounds of the 1920s era tunes. We will disembark at our Rusk Depot and enjoy “The Dave Washburn Jazz Band” performing LIVE while a 1920’s themed dinner is served on the beautifully decorated grounds of the Rusk Depot.  Eat, drink and dance your evening away by the lake!

This event is exclusively for adults 21+. ADA-compliant coaches are available, but reservations must be made directly with the reservations desk. Please note that this is a diesel event, not steam-powered.

I have ridden on it twice. Take a ride into the past. A slow relaxing ride through some pleasant countryside.

I had the time of my life riding in this vintage train...it was my birthday gift from my children...it had been one of my bucket list wishes...
