All aboard the Harborside Express! Take a ride on a real caboose!
The “Harborside Express” 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 museum uses weather.com and zip code 77550 to make closure decisions. The train crew takes a 30-minute lunch break during the noon hour on Saturdays. Groups will need to be six feet from each other or wear a mask.
