This is another interesting part of Temple to see. The railroad is an important part of this city's history & I learned more interesting facts at the museum. It is very nicely set up. Railroad buffs would love it.

Don't let the construction around Amtrak Station chase you off. Very interesting displays of railroad equipment, stories, switching operations, telegraph and model train display.

If you are interested in trains and the history, this is museum you should visit. The old depot has been restored and it is a beautiful building.
