Create holiday memories by traveling across Texas by model railroad in this scratch-built O-scale model. 

The multiple trains crisscrossing the state will visit important and unique places in the state’s geology and physiography. Destinations include oil country salt domes, prairies, and wetlands of the Texas coast, and state and national monuments such as Enchanted Rock, Pedernales Falls, The Balcones Escarpment, and Big Bend National Park. Along the routes to these geologic wonders, the trains will also pass through Galveston, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio with other surprises along the route.

This exhibit (the size of a tennis court) is the largest indoor O-scale model railroad in Texas.  

Included with permanent exhibit hall admission.
