Trains are almost mystical in their magic. They come rolling through the billowing fog, spewing steam like an iron dragon, preparing to pick up their next load of passengers. And train rides in Texas are a great way to visit a new place for a day without committing to a hotel or worrying about driving (especially driving at night!). These five Texas train rides allow you to sit back, relax, and let someone else take the wheel while you escape reality for a little while.
