Description

A $100 Gift Certificate to be used towards the purchase of tickets on their Hill Country Flyer, or the Bertram Flyer.  

Take a step back in time as you step on board their vintage passengers cars for a relaxing journey to the past. 

Hill Country Flyer 

Their signature ride is back! This 66 mile round trip excursion journeys through the Texas Hill Country, crossing the wooden trestle bridge over the South San Gabriel River and Short Creek Canyon. During the two hour layover in Burnet you can enjoy lunch on your own, a leisurely stroll around the historic town square and the Wild West Gunfight (weather permitting). Finally, relax and enjoy their historic cars as the train returns to Cedar Park in the afternoon!

Or hop on board the Bertram Flyer for their shorter 3 hour adventure.  They run primarily on the weekend, with a few weekday rides available in March, June, July, and August.  

Bertram Flyer

Sit back for a relaxing journey into passenger railroad’s glorious past onboard the Bertram Flyer! Their vintage train cars are from the golden era of rail travel, built in the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, and fully restored for your enjoyment. On board the train, your 44 mile journey spans the South San Gabriel River and stops for a 15 minute layover at our historic 1912 Bertram Depot. Enjoy views of Short Creek Canyon, the 300-foot-long wooden trestle bridge over the South San Gabriel, and the Duffy-Shamrock communications mast—one of the tallest structures in the world! All cars are pulled by a diesel locomotive. Parties of two may be seated at shared tables. This ride is 3 hours round trip with a 15 minute layover. 

 All aboard!
