Texas State Railroad Rusk Depot, Park Road 76 Highway 84 West Rusk, Texas, United States

The Texas State Railroad, established in 1881, is truly a "Texas Treasure!" This historic railroad and camping park offers both steam and diesel train excursions that travel through the scenic piney woods of East Texas. Passengers may board excursion trains at either the Rusk or Palestine depots. The trip takes 1 hour each way with a 1 hour lunch layover at the opposite train depot. Operating weekend excursions year-round and special events throughout the year.
