Texas State Railroad - 2

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 21 February 2020 in Transportation.

The Texas State Railroad is a historic 25 mi (40 km) railroad between Rusk and Palestine, Texas.

The state leased the line to private companies until 1969 then turned it over to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1972. In 2007, the railroad was transferred to the Texas State Railroad Authority and is now privately operating as a scenic tourist line. It is currently operated on a limited, year-round schedule.

In the Netherlands we also have several historical trains. They only run during the summer months for tourists.

Would be fun to take a ride on the train, imaging what it was like in the "olden" days.
