A bit slow and lots of scenery of just cedar trees up close. But we enjoyed the leisurely ride and recommend the trailblazer restaurant on the square for lunch. Thanks everybody!

This was an experience of a lifetime! This was the first time that myself and family, had ever been on a train. Everyone on the train was super kind. My kiddos really loved it, and were super excited to go where the conductor was!! Were definitely going to visit again!!!

The train ride was relaxing. I was hoping for narration on at least part of the trip about the Texas Hill Country we were passing through. A man did talk about the train, that was good. Nice time in Burnet, be sure to make a lunch reservation.

About Austin Steam Train Association

Austin Steam Train Association recreates steam-era railroading for guests who want a taste of the picturesque past. Rides aboard its diesel locomotive often include stops in Bertram to admire a restored 1912 train depot. Guests can ride in authentic cars from a variety of different historic trains. What's more, the diesel also hosts a variety of special events, including murder-mystery parties, holiday-themed rides, wine-tasting rides, and once-a-year, a kid-friendly adventure led by Thomas the Tank Engine.

When workers aren't running the trains, they're working on rebuilding them. The association originally began with the goal of refurbishing a Southern Pacific 786 locomotive that had sat in Austin park. It aims to get the locomotive back to working condition so it can sound its whistle across the countryside once again.
