Yep, you read that right - Texas has its own Polar Express. If you really want to get into the holiday spirit, make plans now to climb onboard this popular rail express that runs seasonally.

Since the early 1800s, Texas has been a railroad state from steam engines to the modern-day Amtrak. Even more interesting is the fact that Texas is home to nearly 30 railroad museums.

  • Future Texas High-Speed Train
  • Grapevine Vintage Railroad
  • Heartland Flyer
  • Jefferson Railway
