Chugga Chugga Choo Choo

On Saturday we took a trip back in time to ride a unique and old steam engine train on the Texas State Railroad. We drove to Rusk (only 30 or so minutes from us) to catch the 11 o'clock train to Palestine. The trip lasted about 1 1/2 hours one way. The car we were in was built in the 1920's, and the weather was nice so it made the trip very comfotable. While aboard, we met a sherrif and a cowboy. We had a layover at the park where we ate lunch, looked in the gift shop and watched a cowboy gunshow. We headed back on the train for another relaxing ride back to Rusk. There is a Polar Express ride in the winter, I'm hoping to bring Dallas back to that one too. It was fun, if you're ever in the mood for a train ride this is definately a trip worth taking.
