Austin Steam Train Association

Austin Steam Train Association recreates steam-era railroading for guests who want a taste of the picturesque past. Rides aboard its Alco diesel locomotive often include stops in Burnet to watch gunfight re-enactments or in Bertram to admire a restored 1912 train depot. Guests can ride in authentic cars from a variety of different historic trains. Lean back on the Buckeye Trail excursion coach car, pull out a deck of cards on the City of Chicago first-class lounge, or relax in the adults-only first-class lounge, Rippling Stream. The Alco also hosts a variety of special events, including murder-mystery parties, wine-tasting rides, and a once-a-year, kid-friendly adventure led by Thomas the Tank Engine.

When workers aren't running the trains, they're working on rebuilding them. The association originally began with the goal of refurbishing a Southern Pacific 786 locomotive that had sat in Austin park for 30 years. It aims to get the locomotive back to working condition so it can sound its whistle across the countryside once again.
