For my birthday, Brian surprised me with train tickets on the old school Cedar Park Steam Train (and the stunning striped dress I’m wearing!). I’m a big fan of trains and anytime I see one, I have to ride it (like here and here and here), so Brian did a good job with this one. It was such a fun evening. We sat in a restored train car while the steam train chugged along. On the train, we got snacks and drinks and we watched the sun set as we pulled into the little city of Bertram.
We stopped at the station for a few minutes – enough to get a few sweet photos – then headed back to Cedar Park. This trip was the sunset tour, but the Austin Steam Train Association has many other tours. They run special Halloween and Christmas trains, along with wine tasting and murder mystery!
