Model train


The late R.D. Moses and his friend Jack Luck spent over 30 years creating and building a HO gauge model railroad layout that depicted the Texas & Pacific Railway in West Texas in the 1950s.  It is known as one of the best in the hobby. 

It is housed in a specially constructed replica of an early1900s train depot located on Museum property.

The main track line on the layout has 193 feet of rail that curves around mountains and emerges from valleys.  

The Jefferson & Cypress Bayou Model Railroad Club operates and maintains the layout for the Museum.
