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.

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

My 4 year old daughter loved the North Pole Express, but my 8 year old son knew all along that we weren't going to the North Pole and was very disappointed that we just went 5 miles down the tracks and then reversed back to the station. The hot cocoa is just hot water and powdered cocoa mix that was... More

Husband and I went on the Jazz Wine Train and had a good time. Sampled four wines and listened to a nice Jazz band. My recommendation is to turn this into a dining train on certain dates and have white glove service with some type of live music. And...drive to Fort Worth instead of HEB and back.

This is a really cute idea for visitors to the DFW area or just for something fun to do. We left exactly on time, and yes we were delayed on the tracks to wait for another train. BUT the conductor changed our leaving time from Fort Worth so that we didn't have to cut our time short. Very fun trip,... More
