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.
