Houston Area Live Steamers DETAILS
From the organizer:
The Houston Area Live Steamers is devoted to live steam modeling: from locomotives, to stationary engines, to tractors and boats, with a particular emphasis on model trains large enough to ride. Our members own engines and trains in 1″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″ and 3″ scales and our dual gauge track serves both 4-3/4″ and 7-1/2″ gauges. A Gauge One track has been in operation since April 26, 2003 and is one of he largest Gauge One tracks in the area.
On the third Saturday of each month, March through November and Select Sundays, the members of Houston Area Live Steamers offer FREE rides to the public on our track map
All ages are welcome to ride. No reservations needed, Just get in line and ride. The rides are about one mile in lenght and last 12-15 minutes. We have several club diesel engines that normally run the passenger trains, as well as private engines belonging to club members, but many times you will find a steam engine also running. We have specially designed cars for the young and the young at heart who enjoy hearing the clickety-clack of the rails.
