Description: The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt...
The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt Route between Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Railroad is serviced by two vintage locomotives which include "Puffy" the 1896 Steam locomotive and oldest continously operating steam engine in the South, and a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive. Passengers enjoy riding in authentic 1920s and 1930s Victorian - style coaches as they take a step back in time and experience train travel as it was in the glory days of the expanding West. Pull into the Fort Worth Stockyards Station and you'll be right in the middle of the Stockyards National Historic District where the Old West comes alive. Have fun at this outstanding retail and entertainment district.

No issues with the scenery if you take the Trinity River Run from the Stockyards, as it provides good views of the river, park and city (takes a different route than the Grapevine round trip). The train staff were very friendly and helpful. The car attendant gave my grandson a ring pop, which made him very happy and blue. The... More

This trip was billed as a wine tasting on a train with hors d'oeuvres. The wine was ok. The hors d'oeuvres were minimal and served in a "to go" box. For each hors d'oeuvre listed, there was exactly one--and a small piece. To top this off, you have to hold your wine the box and your eating utensil. They give... More

We rode the Grapevine Fun Train which departs on Saturday mornings at 10 am. It is a 1 hour ride that returns to the same station. My two kids 7 y/o and 3 y/o sons absolutely loved it. They got to sit by the window and enjoyed watching and waving as the train chugged on. They sell snacks and drinks.... More

We went with 2 grand kids and their parents. Ages 3 yrs and 6 mos. The train was decorated beautifully and the sing a long was fun. Great choice of songs. The elves were great (personality and dress). Mrs Claus's visit was perfect. She really took the time with each group to interact with the kids and take pictures. True... More

We rode the seasonal "North Pole Express" and it was beautiful. The inside of the train was perfectly decorated. The staff were so friendly and professional. We can't wait to go back and ride another train sometime.

We booked the touring class (open air) from Grapevine to the Stockyards. It was smooth sailing going, but we had about a 20 minute delay in the train yard whilst a commercial train was given clearance. That just made it that more interesting, if you ask me (of course, some graffiti was hard to explain to a 7 yr old..)... More

I spent $125 for tickets for my son, daughter in law and two grandsons along with my husband and I. My oldest grandson (2 years old) is really into choo choo trains, I was not expecting my 2 month old grandson to think anything of it, no big deal there. Upon entrance you do not see Puffy the steam engine,... More
