Welcome to the
New Braunfels Railroad Museum
Operated By The New Braunfels Historic Railroad And Modelers Society
Home Page

THE NEW BRAUNFELS HISTORIC RAILROAD AND MODELERS SOCIETY (NBHRMS) IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO THE PRESERVATION OF RAILROAD ARTIFACTS AND EDUCATION. OUR GROUP IS MADE UP OF A DIVERSE CROSS SECTION OF INTERESTS RELATING TO RAILROADING. THESE INTERESTS INCLUDE RAILROAD HISTORY, THE COLLECTION OF ARTIFACTS FOR THE MUSEUM, MODEL RAILROADING IN ALL SCALES, AND RAILFANNING.

WITHIN THE MUSEUM IS A VARIETY OF ARTIFACTS AND HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF RAILROADING. MANY ARE RELATED TO THE NEW BRAUNFELS OPERATIONS OF THE I-GN, MOPAC AND MKT RAILROADS. THE MUSEUM IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND ALL ARE WELCOME!

NEXT TO THE MUSEUM, IS ONE OF THE NORTH/SOUTH, UNION PACIFIC, MAJOR RAILROAD TRACKS, IN THE UNITED STATES. OVER 30 UNION PACIFIC AND BURLINGTON NORTHERN SANTA FE TRAINS PASS BY NEXT TO THE DEPOT EVERY DAY. MANY OF THESE TRAINS ARE GOING TO OR COMING FROM CANADA AND MEXICO. IT IS NOT UNUSUAL TO SEE A CANADIAN OR MEXICAN LOCOMOTIVE, AS PART OF A CONSIST. THE SAN ANTONIO TO CHICAGO AMTRAK PASSENGER TRAIN PASSES BY TWICE PER DAY (NORTHBOUND IN THE MORNING & SOUTHBOUND IN THE EARLY EVENING). THE NEW BRAUNFELS RAILROAD MUSEUM IS A GREAT PLACE TO RAILFAN.
