Celebration of Steam

Date: May 23 - May 24, 2020

Rare Steam Locomotives of the Historic Golden Age

Time travel is a reality aboard Texas State Railroad. Vintage steam and diesel locomotives are the time machines that take you through the celebrated Piney Woods, transitioning you to a period when steam was king and diesel power was in its infancy.

The big boys of steam will come come out to play throughout the year of 2020. Check the booking calendar to schedule a ride behind one of these rare steam locomotives of the historic Golden Age.

The Celebration of Steam at the Official Railroad of Texas, with a display of TSRR’s notable steam and diesel engines, will be at the Palestine depot. The property will open to guests at 8:00 a.m. and the train will depart the Palestine depot at 11:00 a.m. The static locomotives will be lined up on the wye, offering photo opportunities to capture and epitomize the summer opener. Guests who hold a train ticket will have better access to view these classic locomotives. For those without a ticket to ride, there will be a nominal fee to enter the property for this event. Our cafe and gift shop will be open for food, beverage and memorabilia purchases.
