Step into the past. Serviced by two vintage locomotives, the railroad is a must for any train enthusiast. “Puffy,” the oldest continuously operating steam engine in the South, and “Vinny,” a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive, chug along the track, carrying passengers looking to travel in style. Complete your experience at the Stockyards by opting for the Trinity River Ride, a one-hour round trip that travels along the gorgeous Chisholm Trail.
