Allen Railroad Days Exhibit

Saturday, March 25, 2017

The Allen Heritage Guild presents a modular train exhibit, free to public, with over 100 models of freight, passenger and work trains drawn by steam and diesel engines, representing various southwestern railroads. The Allen Train Depot, a typical Houston and Texas Central station is represented in miniature, as it appeared in 1942 before it was destroyed by fire. Model train experts will be available during the exhibit for free appraisals and identification. For the youngsters, there will be wooden railways that they can operate. Also, videos of Steam and Diesel operations during the 1950's and 60's will run thoughout the show. The Allen Senior Center "Train Guys" will have a drawing for model train sets on March 19 and March 26.
