Harborside Express Train Rides - Saturday & Sunday

The Harborside Express will be running during the Model Train Show.  It is an open air caboose that travels 1 mile up Harborside Dr., then returns to the Galveston Railroad Museum. The train rides are approximately 15 minutes long. Boarding for the Harborside Express begins at 11:00 am, with the last train ride ticket sold at 1:30 pm. The train is a standing ride without seats. Due to the caboose being open air, the rides will sometimes be closed during inclement weather.  

The last ticket is sold at 1:30pm.

Tickets for the Harborside Express are $5 in addition to admission to the Galveston Railroad Museum, and must be purchased at the museum.
