Santa Train 2016
The Museum held its annual Santa Train event on Saturday, December 10, 2016. The event was again a success, with parents and their little ones coming to visit Santa, visit the Museum, and ride the Harborside Express despite the chilly weather. We appreciate our volunteers who came to help out including: Bruce and Glenda Hehemann, Gino Vaiani, Perry Hatch, and Spence Gaskin.
On Sunday, October 2, 2016 BNSF and the Railroad Museum came together to honor Galveston First Responders on roundtrip train ride from Galveston to Brenham, TX, using the Museum's famous Santa Fe Chief Locomotives. This was also the first train ride made available to the public. Chairman of the Board, Dr. John Bertini, hired Justin Minchew and his crew to create a drone video of the trip. The video turned out fantastic. You can view it below:
