To preserve, enjoy and share with the public the memory, history and experience of railroading, particularly Texas railroading, as it has been and as it is now.
Our current projects include development of the Texas Railroading Heritage Museum at Tomball (in cooperation with the City of Tomball and Harris County) and renovation of former Kansas City Southern Lines Southern Belle Tavern-Lounge-Observation Good Cheer for operation at Austin Steam Train Association. In addition, we recently completed repainting our MKT Texas Special coach New Braunfels, which is in service at Austin Steam Train Association.
