Grapevine Vintage Railroad


The Grapevine Vintage Railroad is a popular tourist destination for railroad buffs traveling to the D/FW metroplex. It features a roundtrip excursion between the Cotton Belt Depot in Grapevines downtown historic district to Fort Worth Stockyards station. The line operates two locomotives. The most famous is "Puffy", an 1896 Steam Locomotive that smokes, puffs and steams it's way down the track. The other unit is this 1953 GP-7 #2199 Diesel Locomotive.  Either way, passengers are treated to an open air experience of riding the rails.

In the photos below, we were treated to a trip down the tracks in the cab of the GP-7.  It was a real thrill to ride in the locomotive as it switched the passenger cars in preparation for a trip to the Stockyards.
