Galveston Railroad Museum

The Buddy loves trains, so on Saturday morning Maegan and I took him to the Galveston Railroad Museum.



The museum has three steam engines (static) and three diesel engines (operable) on display.

The museum also has on display a variety of passenger and freight cars that are open so that you have the ability to climb into them and have a look around. It's amazing that only a mere hundred years ago via train was literally the only way to travel or ship things across country.

A hand car!


The best passenger car.

We had a great time. If you're ever hanging out in Galveston, a visit to the Railroad Museum is an excellent opportunity to catch a glimpse of a bygone titan of Americana.
