Jacob's Review:
   It is a big train - It was gigantic... Inside it's like an old fashioned cowboy train. It looks like a regular old train that goes down the railroad tracks.


Dad's Notes:
   A living historic experience! You can ride the ancient steam train from Cedar Park to Burnet and back! Through the scenic Texas Hill Country! Saturday mornings, but also a number of special events (call for more info!). The train is an early era steam train with original plush coaches, it stops in Burnet to allow passengers to shop, eat and perhaps witness a wild west gun show!

   Other train routes including a downtown Austin 2 hour ride, a story book ride for kids and more - see their web site! Also, not all cars air conditioned - check when you call - fills up fast!

   You must buy tickets before the end of the day on Friday (over the phone). Times change frequently - call or check web for current.
