It’s a Leap Year!  Let’s hop on a train and celebrate a once every four years February 29th at the Rosenburg Train Museum. 

We’ll meet up at the Old Railway Café for a quarterly breakfast at 11:00 am and then after breakfast we will walk to the Rosenburg Railroad Museum just around the corner.  During our docent guided tour, we will learn about the about the rich history of Rosenberg's Union Depot which served the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads from 1883 until 1917.

"Clang, clang!"  The Rosenberg Railroad Museum's (RRM) railroad bell is a favorite of Museum patrons both young and old.  Nestled up against three active train lines in downtown Historic Rosenberg, RRM is a hidden gem within city limits. With our park-like grounds, HO scale and G Scale layouts, historical railroad artifacts, Tower 17, MoPac Caboose and the "Quebec," our beautiful, fully restored 1879 business railcar, you'll be so glad you came.

Our mechanically inclined MG club members can learn about Tower 17, the original Rosenberg interlocking tower.  Visitors can operate the interlocker (an electro-mechanical machine), pull the levers just as the tower operators did and operate actual semaphore signals during our visit to the museum.
