One of the fun things that we did in Texas was to take a train ride. The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt Route between Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Railroad is serviced by two vintage locomotives which include “Puffy” the 1896 Steam locomotive and oldest continously operating steam engine in the South, and a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive. Passengers enjoy riding in authentic 1920s and 1930s Victorian – style coaches as they take a step back in time and experience train travel as it was in the glory days of the expanding West. The train pulls into the Fort Worth Stockyards Station and drops you off right in the middle of the Stockyards National Historic District where the Old West comes alive.
