The Grapevine Vintage Railroad does accept request for donations, however certain qualifications must be met to be considered. Any donation requests must be made at least a minimum of 45 days prior to your event to allow time for processing and consideration by GVRR.  Any requests made later than 45 days prior to the event may be rejected. Any organization or group requesting a donation must be a 501(c)3 non-profit entity. You may be requested to provide your tax exempt letter from the state to verify your non-profit status.  A group or organization may only make one donation request per calendar year.  Groups/organizations based in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex area are given first consideration, however other groups/organizations based in other Texas cities may still make a request.  All donation requests will be reviewed by Grapevine Vintage Railroad staff and Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau management personnel to determine approval status. A request may be denied for any reason or without cause.  If you have more questions about the donation process or would like to make a request, please contact Brian Gentry at



The Grapevine Vintage Railroad cannot guarantee arrival times due to sharing rails with freight trains and Amtrak. Delays or cancellations may also occur due to TEXRail construction or 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.  Refunds will be given due to cancellation.

If you miss the train, please call (817) 410-3185 to reschedule for a different day based on availability.  Refunds and reschedules are not offered if you miss the return trip from Fort Worth at 4:05.
