Austin Steam Train

This past weekend the Austin Spartans rented the entire Santa Fe car on the Austin Steam Train for a discounted price!  We couldn't pass that up, plus we've never ridden the train.  It was a quaint train ride from Cedar Park to Burnet, they even provided snacks!  Once in Burnet we ate at the Highlander restaurant and wandered around the town.  Emma and I volunteered to star in the Wild West Shoot out as town folk, we even had speaking roles!  Everyone had a great time and Ry was in a great mood despite only taking a 15 min cat nap in the car ride back home at the end of the day.

Come join the Austin Spartans for a historic train ride into the Texas Hill Country. We have booked the Santa Fe 1343 car aboard the Hill Country Flyer for a great trip on Saturday, April 27th, 2013. This popular train ride departs Cedar Park at 10:00am (arrive by 9:30) for a two hour journey through the Texas Hill Country to Burnet. Passengers can enjoy lunch and shopping at their own leisure during stopover. The Burnet Gunfighters present their wild west gunfight, weather permitting, at the train station in Burnet before the trains leaves at approximately 2:15 pm to return to Cedar Park.
