If you think the cooler temperatures aren't enough to get you into the fall mood then consider taking a trip on the Texas State Railroad.
This weekend kicks off the The Great Pumpkin Patch Express complete with Snoopy and a live reading of "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown."
The Texas State Railroad will depart from the Rusk Depot (in Rusk) on Oct. 2, 7-9, 14-15, 22 & 29 at 11 a.m. and on Saturdays there is an additional 1:45 p.m. departure.
Visitors can also pick out their own pumpkin, visit trick or treat street and kids are encouraged to come in costume. And from what we here, it's worth the drive.
