Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse - Model Railroad Schedule

2005-09-18 to 2006-07-30

The George Bush Library is pleased to welcome twelve modular model railroads to the library during the nine months of the Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse exhibit. The model railroads will be set up in the rotunda of the library and will be operated on weekends (Saturday 9:00-5:00 and Sunday 12:00-5:00), holidays, and during special museum events. On weekdays, the railroads will remain set up as static displays.

The Bush Library would like to extend a special thanks to all of the model railroad clubs and private owners who have agreed to display their layouts at the Bush Library. The library would also like to thank the Manor Inn Hotel for providing discounted lodging to our model railroad exhibitors.
