Coming to Grapevine in late 2018!
Have you noticed all the construction around the Cotton Belt Depot in Grapevine? It's all part of a new 27-mile commuter rail project!
No, the Grapevine Vintage Railroad is not going away. And neither is the Cotton Belt Depot or the vintage experience riders get.
However, by December of 2018 passenger operation is projected to begin on the new TEXRail commuter rail, which will take passengers from Downtown Fort Worth, to North Richland Hills, Grapevine, and Terminal B of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The project is estimated to have more than 8,000 riders per day with stops at nine rail stations.

As part of the Grapevine station development, "Grapevine Main" is currently under construction as well. Located at the intersection of Main Street and Dallas Road, the project development includes:
- 42,000 square-foot, five-story tall rail station
- "Hotel Vin" - a six-story, 121-room boutique hotel
- 38-000 square-foot outdoor plaza large enough to host 3,500 guests
- 552 space parking garage
