Texas State Railroad - Palestine, TX
The Texas State Railroad, established 1881, is truly a "Texas Treasure!" This historic train travels through the scenic piney woods and hardwood creek bottoms of East Texas where rolling hills, nature and wildlife abound.
The Texas State Railroad offers both steam and diesel train excursions reminiscent of days gone by. Passengers may board excursion trains at either the Rusk or Palestine depots where southern hospitality is the norm. These depots were built with an eye for detail and the elegance of Victorian charm. They are surrounded by beautiful parks with lakes and streams offering visitors full-service campground facilities, picnic areas, concessions and a great deal more to enhance a four-season vacation experience. This is a perfect family outing!
