Our Piney Woods Excursion takes visitors on a relaxing and scenic round trip journey through the beautiful East Texas countryside. Our route is flanked by two exquisite Victorian Depots that give riders a glimpse of what it would be like to catch a train in the golden age of rail travel. Our Lone Star Class feature climate-controlled seating at cloth covered tables, personal car attendant and snack service. Passengers have a choice of an Adult Only car for ages 18 and older or a Family car for all ages. Standard seating offers two choices that include Coach with traditional upholstered seating in an enclosed car (non-climate-controlled) with windows that open and close or Open Air seating with bench-style seating in an open car. Riding on the winding bands of steel of the Texas State Railroad takes passengers back to a time when life was simpler and railroads were the premiere form of transportation.
