Ride the Rails on a Memorial Day Brunch Train Through Texas Beauty

By  | 

The Texas State Railroad offers a Memorial Day Brunch Train that is absolutely as relaxing and scenic as you would imagine. If you’re looking for more than just a barbecue to commemorate your long weekend and all that it stands for, perhaps a ride on the rails through the Piney Woods will do the trick. While dining on fine breads, cheeses, meats, fruit that’s dipped in decadent chocolate, and so much more, you’ll pass through a part of Texas featuring more than 100 species of birds, beautiful foliage, 24 bridges, and even a vintage railway turntable!

The 50-mile train ride is being offered by the “Official State Railroad of Texas” for passengers to journey through parts of the Lone Star State in style. It’s complete with a prepared meal, as well as a concession car for those who might still be peckish afterward. And it would be hard to be uncomfortable in their plush leather seats, featuring full table service, amazing views, and your very own private outdoor viewing platform. Not only that, but for those looking to leave the younger ones at home, Presidential Class offers an adults-only car. Guests will also receive a free glass of sparkling cider or Champagne.

Tickets for the Memorial Day Brunch Train range from $129 per person for Presidential Class to $119 for First Class (featuring cloth sofa seating) and $109 for Deluxe Coach (with upholstered bench seating). There’s also a Dome Class, which gives you amazing panoramic viewing, and a caboose ride-along! Regardless of ticket selection, all travelers will have access to an open-air car as a bonus, which features the vintage seating the railroad would, at one time, have maintained throughout their cars. Here, ticket holders can take in the East Texas landscape from an entirely different perspective.
