Is the Galveston Railroad Museum the only train hotel in Texas?
Would you believe us if we told you that the Galveston Railroad Museum is *not* the only train hotel in Texas? Be still, our locomotive-loving hearts! In Fredericksburg, Texas, you have the opportunity to spend the night in a historic, antique train car VRBO that’s just a few blocks away from Main Street. The car is named after the Four Sixes Ranch in Wichita County and was used by the owner, S. Burde Burnett, to make his travels to and from the ranch more comfortable. Fun fact: Theodore Roosevelt even took the car on an excursion from Fort Worth to Oklahoma! It's been passed around the country countless times over the years, but managed to find its way back to Texas. Luckily, the current owners have made some major renovations to the inside and transformed it from an industrial, cold locomotive to a cozy, romantic cottage on wheels. This is a unique getaway in Texas you'll definitely want to experience.
What are some other train excursions in Texas?
Here in Texas, we’re pretty big on trains. From locomotive museums to depots that put on holiday-themed rides to even hotels with train cars for rooms, there’s no shortage of railroad fun to be had in the Lone Star State. One of our favorite train-themed destinations in Texas is the Jefferson Railway, which features an old-fashioned steam train that was built in 1964. Residents of Jefferson and nearby towns look forward to the holiday-themed train rides all year long, including but not limited to a Halloween train, Christmas train, and New Year's train. The Austin Steam Train is another must-visit for train lovers; here, you have the unique opportunity to ride on a restored diesel train at the Austin Steam Train Association. The most popular ride is the six-hour Hill Country Flyer, which takes two hours each way and has a two-hour lunch break. As soon as you step onto the train, you'll be whisked back into the 1950s and '60s and learn what locomotive travel was like back then. It's a total time warp sure to have you reliving the heyday of the American locomotive!
