PALESTINE — The Texas State Railroad is bringing back a popular event, and this year it has the added bonus of occurring on the night of a full moon!

Guests on the Friday, Feb. 14 Valentine’s Moonlight Special dinner train will enjoy a reception in the portico at the Palestine Depot at 6 p.m. featuring a spread of fruits, veggies, dips, cheeses, crackers and non-alcoholic sparkling wine.

The train, which departs at 6:30 p.m., will be decorated for the occasion and romantic background music will play throughout the ride.

The meal will begin with a green salad with tomato, cucumber, sliced carrots, mushrooms and croutons and black pepper ranch dressing on the side. The main entrée will consist of a bacon-wrapped filet mignon and Whisky Peach Chicken. Side dishes include tomato rice pilaf, whole kernel corn and rolls.

Tea, water and coffee also will be served. Guests are welcome to bring their own beverage, but they must uncork and pour their own drinks.

For dessert, guests will dine on a chocolate and strawberry parfait, with a heart-shaped cookie on the side. Each guest also will be given a small gift to take home with them.

Seating is limited. To make reservations call 903-683-3098 or book online at:
