The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt Route from Grapevine to the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Railroad is serviced by two vintage locomotives which include “Puffy” the 1896 steam locomotive, which is the oldest continuously operating steam engine in the South, and “Vinny” the 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive. Passengers enjoy riding in authentic 1920s 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 are right in the middle of the Stockyards National Historic District where the Old West comes alive.
If you are already in the Fort Worth Stockyards, enjoy the Trinity River Ride, a one-hour round trip departing Stockyards Station that travels along the Chisholm Trail and crosses the Trinity River to 8th Avenue and back.
