Operated by the non-profit Texas State Railroad Society, the Railroad Heritage Center exists to celebrate Palestine's railroad history and encourage participation in the many facets of railroading. Our prime attraction is the 37' by 17' HO scale model railroad, the masterpiece of the late Paul A. Domis of Dallas, on which several trains can run at once. Trains reflect a Texas heritage. Evolving exhibits focus on the development of transport in Texas, an appreciation of the "Traquero" or track worker, the engineering importance of Texas & Pacific 610 stored at the Texas State Railroad and railroad art, as well as interactive railroad experiences.
Open Monday – Saturday 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Hours may be changed or extended to cater to railroad interests when trains are running at the Texas State Railroad. Please call 903-586-7141 to verify.
