Twenty-three Gulf Coast Chapter NRHS members
and friends traveled to San Antonio and Flatonia May 21 to tour a variety
of historic rail facilities, including two beautifully renovated railroad
stations, a working car and locomotive repair facility and a restored interlocking
In addition, the group sought out what is believed
to be the only remaining architectural element of MKT's demolished San
Antonio depot. The decorative door surround now graces a window at
one of the buildings in San Antonio's Los Patios retail complex, where
the tour group stopped for lunch.
Photos from the tour appear below. For
