Calling all train enthusiasts and those who sporadically use foreign accents: All aboard when the Grapevine Train hosts another one of its themed Wacky Wednesdays: The Accent's on Fun Day. A discount of $5 off adult and senior round-trip tickets is easy to get--saunter deliberately up to the ticket window and ask for the appropriate number. Joos reymeembahr tuh spake vith ah furrin aksunt. Once the tickets are in-hand, continuing the accent for the duration of the ride is entirely up to the purchaser, but wholly encouraged by us. Tickets are normally $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $10 for juniors. The ride departs at 10 a.m., arrives at the Fort Worth Stockyards at about 11:30 and returns to the Grapevine Depot later in the day. Reserve tickets by visiting www.grapevinevintagerailroad.com or call 1-800-457-6338. 'Ave a g'day mate!
