THE TEXAS RAILROADING HERITAGE
MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY CLOSED WHILE WE COMPLETE PLANS FOR OUR MOVE.
NO DATE HAS BEEN SET FOR THE MUSEUM'S REOPENING.
A NOTE ON OUR NAME: THE TEXAS
RAILROADING HERITAGE MUSEUM WAS KNOWN AS THE HOUSTON RAILROAD
MUSEUM UNTIL EARLY 2014 WHEN THE NAME WAS CHANGED TO REFLECT
THE BROADER SCOPE OF THE MUSEUM'S RAIL CAR, ARTIFACT AND ARCHIVE
COLLECTIONS AND TO PREPARE FOR A RE-LOCATION TO A SUBURBAN HOUSTON
to everyone who participated in the 2014 Big Texas Train Show!
had our largest attendance ever at this year's Big Texas Train
Show. Thanks go out to all of the model railroad clubs, railroad
museums and other exhibitors and vendors who supported the show.
also go to the many people who attended the show on Sept. 6 and
7: We had fun, and hope you did, too!
most commonly asked question was, "Will you be doing this
again?" We can't answer that just yet, as it depends on
the available volunteer resources (we are an all-volunteer organization)
and the availability of a suitable venue and date (thanks to
the great staff at the George R. Brown Convention Center for
all that they did for us this year!).

Our mission is 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.
