RailFest 2018 will feature model trains in action by the Houston “S” Gaugers on their traveling layout, the Houston Area “G” Gaugers on the Museum’s garden railroad, and on the Museum’s HO and Lionel layouts. A kid-friendly interactive switching exhibit, hosted by the San Jacinto Model Railroad Club, will be available for a hands-on challenge for all ages. In addition, the “Texas Flyer” trackless train will be on hand, as well as bounce houses, crafts and games, face painting and Cowboy Hall of Famer, Larry Callies. Local performer, Kayla Gulley, will provide live music throughout the event. Food vendors and Operation Lifesaver will be on hand, as well as a Museum open house and much more! And, be sure to check out the Collectibles and Rare Book Sale! All proceeds from the event benefit museum operations.
