Texas State Railroad photo charter

Trains Magazine and Texas State Railroad present a 1920s backwoods mixed train for photographers and fans!
Trains Magazine and the Texas State Railroad will offer a weekend with a 1920s steam freight train May 2-3, 2020. The event is designed primarily for photography but will also appeal to anyone interested in history, short lines, or steam locomotives.

The Texas State Railroad’s Tremont & Gulf 2-8-2 No. 30 will pull a train of up to 10 freight cars and a coach to recreate a short line mixed train. Multiple photo runbys will be offered both days on the 25-mile railroad. Lunch is included both days.

“The Texas State Railroad, featured in our December issue, arriving in subscribers mailboxes soon, and available on newsstands Nov. 12, is a great steam railroad,” says Editor Jim Wrinn. “We look forward to sharing the experience of seeing No. 30 on an authentic freight consist as she would have pulled in the 1920s.”

Additionally, famed Texas & Pacific 2-10-4 No. 610, normally stored inside, will be pulled out for display and photos.

Tickets for the two day event are $595 each. Customers can reserve a spot online or by calling 800-424-2473.
