The Tarantula Train

The train travels down the Grapevine Vintage Railroad which runs along the historic Cotton Belt Route from Grapevine to the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Tarantula Train is a nickname for the Grapevine Vintage Railroad because an early map of the tracks resembled a big spider. This train still runs regularly for a great sight-seeing tour and folks around town certainly know when it comes huffing and puffing down its tracks.
