Four of us took the Hill Country Flyer to Burnet. The weather was perfect. Unless you have children, you might want spring for the adults-only car, as excited little kids tend to create a lot of noise. Fortunately we found a small private lounge where we hung out for the return trip. The steam engine is undergoing renovations; instead we... More

We boarded the train in Bertram for a 2 hour ride. The ride was great and we had very goog service by the ladies on our car. The conductor, Dave... More

This was a delight for my grandson. There were so many things for the youngsters to do that day and the train ride (tho brief) was a real treat. Can't wait to take the full day ride out in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

It was different, enjoyable and memorable. They have numerous special events- check the website. Upcoming they have a tequila night, a wine... More

Took a ride out to Burnet today on the train, and the ride out was great! Wonderful views of the Hill Country in the Rippling Stream car. As we arrived in Burnet, our car attendant mentioned problems with the air conditioning and they we looking into it. After a nice lunch and a walk around the historic square, we arrived... More

After getting lost, we parked in the wrong area, but still made it. Would suggest better signage to this venue. The ride out was fun, we hadn't expected to have some snacks on the ride. The volunteers were very knowledgeable, which made the trip even more pleasant. Being able to walk through the train and experience the way travel used... More

My wife and I took my brother and his wife on the GRIMM murder mystery trip to Burnet on Saturday night to celebrate their birthdays. We all had a great time. This was kind of a throw back to our younger years when we all rode the train with our parents. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The murder... More
