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. While enjoying the leisurely 21-mile trip, experience the all new Great Train Heist! Keep an eye out for those greedy outlaws onboard. Join in on the fun, and help railroad detectives solve the mystery of who robbed the Grapevine Vintage Railroad.

**Face masks are required to ride the Grapevine Vintage Railroad**
