Jul 03, 2020 - Jul 05, 2020

The 4th of July is going to mean SO MUCH more this year. From sea to shining sea Americans will be invoking their inalienable right to celebrate their freedom! We invite you to savor the Fourth of July holiday with a salute to one of America’s “deepest” roots – Railroading! It’s a chance to wave the Stars and Stripes, choose from a wide selection of lunch options available for purchase at the railroad depot and climb aboard a 100 year-old steam engine. Steam kicks off our new summer season on July 3rd. The Celebration of Steam at the Official Railroad of Texas, with a display of Texas State Railroad’s notable steam and diesel engines, will be at the Palestine depot. The property will open to guests at 8:00 a.m. and the train will depart the Palestine depot at 11:00 a.m. The static locomotives will be lined up on the wye, offering photo opportunities to capture and epitomize the summer opener. Guests who hold a train ticket will have better access to view these classic locomotives. For those without a ticket to ride, there will be a nominal fee to enter the property for this event. Our cafe and gift shop will be open for food, beverage and memorabilia purchases.
