The Second Saturday of every month is now a special day at the Railway Museum.


From 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the museum’s kid-sized motorized train chugs around the grounds. There are Living History tours, vendors, food trucks and a brand-new treasure hunt to help people discover the depot’s secrets. Thanks to Marcy Bosequett, there is a new trolley cart for coffee, tea and cocoa inside the depot.


A grant from San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council allows All Aboard for Arts with workshops on Second Saturdays at 2 p.m. in the museum lobby. On Jan. 8 train collector Dr. Mike Carmichael will lead a workshop on Creating Railroad Scenery. He has been working with Bliss Bignall and Greg Johnson to install the new HO exhibit created and donated by Linda Hill. Starting at 2 p.m., participants will meet in the lobby to paint buildings or other scale model items. To register for the workshop, email info@sanangelorailway@gmail.com.

Other Second Saturday workshops include February’s Los Dias del Tren, when students with ASU’s AMAS organization will do tours in Spanish; Treasures of History with Dr. Michael Powers in March; a Tunes on the Tracks music workshop; Rail Tails with Dr. Linda Thorsen Bond; Railway Days in May; Click and Clack photography workshop; “Better Safe Than Sorry” rail safety in September and more.
