Introducing The C.W.T Express
The ALL NEW Zoo Train
New San Antonio Zoo Train Debuts in Brackenridge Park
On September 27, 2021, a new San Antonio Zoo train, The C.W.T Express was unveiled to the public in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Train Depot in Brackenridge Park. The event was enhanced with music, entertainment, and goody bags to the first 50 riders of the all-new train.
The new train nods to the history of Brackenridge Park, re-introducing a diesel-styled engine to the fleet of three trains, and is the first new train to chug along the tracks here since the early 2000s. The new train was funded 100% by donations and will run on fuel donated by the Valero Energy Corporation. The colors play off the existing San Antonio Zoo color palate and create a bright and exciting design. Fundraising for a second new train is currently underway.
“We are all incredibly excited to showcase this new train to the public here in Brackenridge Park,” said President & CEO San Antonio Zoo, Tim Morrow. “The San Antonio Zoo Train has been a part of San Antonio since 1956, creating lifelong memories for generations. I am humbled by and grateful to the donors and Valero Energy Corporation for bringing this exciting addition to life for our community.”
Open daily* during zoo hours.
