It seems a former employee of the Texas State Railroad created a little confusion on Friday.

According to KBTX 3, the Texas State Railroad was falsely reported as closing earlier in the day.

The Texas State Railroad in Rusk and Palestine have confirmed that there have been layoffs, but the railroad will continue its operations in March.

It seems that there are no excursion trains scheduled in January and February, but those excursion rides will resume in March. Because of this, the railroad needed to manage some costs, hence the layoffs.
