Want to spend a romantic evening with your special someone?
The Texas State Railroad offers its Valentine's Moonlight Special, Feb. 14. Now you can enjoy the unique combination of a full moon occurring on Valentine's Day while aboard a vintage steam train.
Reception starts at 6 p.m. in the portico at the Palestine Depot: a lovely array of hors d'oeuvres and non-alcoholic sparkling wine under the gazebo before the train departs. At 6:30 p.m., passengers on this romance-themed dinner train will enjoy a peaceful ride through the East Texas Forest Country to Maydelle and back, beneath the glow of a full moon.
Contemporary Catering of Palestine will prepare and serve a scrumptious meal.
