Texas State Railroad State Park

I've never been to the Texas State Railroad .

Fifty miles round trip on a steam engined train. Rail joining Rusk and Palestine, Texas, taking tourists on a real historic ride. There is nearby camping at either end of the rail line. You can board your train for a one and a half hour ride to the next depot. You then will have one and a half hours for lunch and a short hike. Then, you board your next train for the return trip.

The TSRR is the only steam train that runs two trains daily, simoultaneously. Each day these trains meet at the midpoint. Here you can see a real steam engine switch and pass.

That I'd like to see.
