Who knew Texas had its own railroad? I didn't. But Wes and I had a chance to ride on it a few weeks ago. It travels from Palestine to Rusk and back. This usually takes about 4 hours with an hour lunch stop along the way.
We thought that was the trip we were headed for, but we ended up on The Great Pumpkin Patch train ride instead.....which turned out to be so much fun! We headed to Rusk, TX, was met by Snoopy and boarded the train with a bunch of kids all dressed up in costumes and headed to the Great Pumpkin Patch. There were all kinds of fun stuff for the kids to do including a bounce house, petting zoo, hayride, and trick or treat street. Even had corn dogs and funnelcakes to eat. YUM! After playing for about an hour, we got back on our train and headed back to Rusk.
We will try again to make the Palestine to Rusk trip one day...but we were so glad that we got on this one by mistake! It was one of the most fun accidents we've ever been on. The kids were so much fun to watch - it was just an enjoyable afternoon.
