Riding the Rails
Texas State RR – Palestine to Rusk and Back
March 8-9, 2019
Become immersed in the romance of train travel as we ride relaxed inside historic first class 1920’s rail cars, being pulled behind a diesel locomotive. The experience is like none other, through scenic pine and mixed oak and Dogwood trees (hopefully in bloom.) Join us and create a memory that will last a lifetime.
We have a group rate of $65.05 per passenger for the 4-hour train trip, and a special flat rate of $8.68 for a pre-ordered box lunch at the Rusk turn around. TSRR does not allow for individuals to call in for group individual payment. I have prepaid for 30 train reservations and box lunches. If you would like to go, please get me your check. Right now I have 28 seats left – don’t hesitate.

River Rat Trip!
WHEN: September 13-15, 2019
WHERE: New Braunfels, TX
Are you up for a leisurely drive to the hill country and a relaxing ride down the Comal River? If you are off work and wish to caravan, we will be leaving Friday at 10:00 am from the Shell Station/Waller County Line BBQ on 290 in Waller at the 362 exit. The Shell is on the south side of 290 (20727 FM 362, Waller, TX 77484) across from Bucc-ee’s. There will be 1 pitstop on the way at Buc-ee’s in Bastrop. If you can’t make that time, then come up on your own.
Usually, when we get to New Braunfels it is too early to check in so we go to The Phoenix Saloon in downtown New Braunfels for a bite and some drinks. This trip is pretty flexible.
