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 COMMUNITY.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2014 Big Texas Train Show!

We 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.

Thanks also go to the many people who attended the show on Sept. 6 and 7: We had fun, and hope you did, too!

The 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.
