The Grapevine Vintage Railroad (GVRR) is a family-friendly attraction in Grapevine, Texas upon which passengers can travel on authentic 1920's-era Victorian train coaches along the historic Cotton Belt Route.
The train is in operation for 10 months out of the year to the delight of the thousands of passengers that board the Grapevine Vintage Railroad each year. It’s only during the months of January and February do train rides pause for annual train inspections and track maintenance. Between March and June, visitors will be able to enjoy train rides every Saturday and Sunday. And by the time summer rolls through the depot, trains will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the months of June, July and August.
As the year starts to end and the days get shorter, the team prepares the railroad for the biggest, most cherished event of the year - the North Pole Express! This family-friendly excursion is a must see as part of the Christmas Capital of Texas. Trains run in November and December, and most weekends in celebration of the jolliest time of the year!
We couldn’t do it without the help of our friends that have been chugging along the rails for more than 100 years! The coaches are pulled by one of two vintage locomotives: an 1896 steam locomotive nicknamed "Puffy" and a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive nicknamed "Vinny".
