RRM Fall Fun Fest 2014
What a beautiful Texas day!
After a full week of heavy rain in Fort Bend and the surrounding counties,
we were hoping for the best!
We were not disappointed! And neither were the 1200+ railfans who came out for the party!
The day broke bright and beautiful, raising spirits for the day ahead. It was an exciting day indeed! The Santa Fe F7 Warbonnet locomotive complete with three fully restored vintage passenger cars arrived about 11:45am on the mainline tracks adjacent to the museum grounds. The engines and passenger cars parked on the tracks for about half an hour for viewing and fan photos from our Observation Platform, Tower 17 and the museum grounds. Young and old alike marveled at the shining engines, restored to their original beauty.
In addition to the much-anticipated Santa Fe appearance, the fans and families enjoyed Train-themed Crafts. "Old Time" Games, Guided Tours of the museum, Live Music and Entertainment, Bounce House, Model Train Layouts provided by the Houston Area "G" Gaugers (including a preview of the fantastic Garden G-scale Model Railroad being created), plus Delicious Food & Drinks at Family Friendly Prices!
Thanks from RRM!
RRM Board Member Sandi Paulus added that "the Rosenberg Railroad Museum is so happy to bring this event to the community. Presenting and teaching about the railroad heritage of our city is our passion! It is such a part of our community's history, as well as the history of Texas and our nation. We appreciate your support of our efforts, but more than that, we appreciate the time you take to bring the next generation along with you to experience their heritage."
