PC-2A railcar inspections
George Templeton, with L&T Services, provided the muscle for the Museum to perform the FRA PC-2A railcar inspection. Many thanks to the L&T crew for all the hard work and capturing these moments.
Experienced volunteers needed
The Museum was fortunate to have 2 complete vintage Southern Pacific Wigwags donated to us by the Union Pacific Railroad. Our goal is to have them operational and installed in the museum's parking lot. We are looking for individuals with signal experience to help make this happen. Please contact Morris or Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 409-765-5700.
Larry George Dedication-2/28/2015
Larry George's family officially opened the display of his layout at the museum this morning. Dr. Duncan has been calling it "Grandpa's Layout" turns out he is right - everyone called him grandpa. We love the layout and hope his family enjoys seeing how much the patrons like it too.
