    The Grapevine Vintage Railroad makes every attempt to adhere to the posted schedules. However, GVRR cannot guarantee arrival times due to sharing rails with TEXRail, Freight Trains and Amtrak. Delays or cancellations may also occur due to emergency track maintenance. The GVRR is considered an excursion train and is essentially a guest on the tracks and other railroads get higher priority with the dispatcher. The Grapevine Vintage Railroad does not offer refunds or compensation due to delays. On rare occasions, delays can be an hour or longer. Due to pre-determined train schedules, we are unable to extend our time in the stockyards. Refunds will be given due to cancellation.
