With all our modern technology, many people forget that transportation was a luxury that most people didn’t have until modern times, and locomotive technology was considered almost magical when it appeared. Manufacturers built their trains in ways that showed off the mechanical power and design, making train travel an experience instead of a way to get from place to place. A little of that grand era of trains can be glimpsed in a few areas of the country that operate old-fashioned trains, and when you stay at Austin RV Park North, you can get a little taste of it just down the road.

Cedar Rock Railroad in Leander is only about thirteen miles from us, and there you can experience for yourself some of the wow factor of old trains. Cedar Rock has a custom-built, quarter-scale train named Sophie that takes passengers through both forests and fields on a 1.4-mile trip around the property. All ages will love their fun and relaxing ride, but there are many more activities to choose from. Young children can play on their own “train”, pretending to ferry passengers around just like Sophie, while kids over three can chase each other in mini locomotives. Old Town Pflooterville is set up like an old west town for kids to chase bad guys and have shootouts in front of the general store.

When you visit, you can purchase souvenirs and refreshments at the “depot,” and there are picnic spots for you to relax in the shade. You can learn more about Cedar Rock Railroad, and get ticket information and hours, on their website here .
