he following websites contain additional information about the Hill Country Flyer and the special event going on in Burnet: ; Tickets are priced as follows: adult: $24.30; senior: $21.60; children from 3-13: $15.30 (babies and children under 3 years can sit in laps and are free). Reservations were made in coach (rather than lounge), as the prices are about half those of lounge. There is no heat or AC in coach, but the windows do open. The train is running on diesel because the steam engine is broken and won't be fixed until some time next year. If you would like to participate in this event, please contact Yvonne Connell soon, as the reservations will be filled rapidly, and NST will need commitments and a headcount.
