Event Description

Step back in time with a nostalgic ride on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. The railroad is serviced by two Victorian-style locomotives, including "Puffy" the 1896 steam locomotive, the oldest continuously operating steam engine in the South, and "Vinny," a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive. Most weekends throughout the year, The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt Route between Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards. The 21-mile trip rolls at a leisurely pace and is perfect for the entire family.

The Grapevine Vintage Railroad makes every attempt to adhere to the posted schedules. However, GVRR cannot guarantee arrival times due to sharing rails with TEXRail, Freight Trains and Amtrak. Delays or cancellations may also occur due to emergency track maintenance.  In cases of a delay in arrival time to the Fort Worth Stockyards, departure times may be changed to extend your time in the Stockyards.  You will be notified of any new departure time during your excursion and upon arrival at the Stockyards.
