Railroad History Days at Cleburne Railroad Museum


The City of Cleburne is celebrating National Train Day at the Cleburne Railroad Museum.

At a recent City Council Meeting, Mayor Scott Cain proclaimed May 10-17 Cleburne Railroad History Days. The proclamation coincides with National Train Day, which is held near May 10, the day in 1869 when the Transcontinental Railroad was completed.

“Cleburne has been blessed to be a part of this nation’s system of railroads for 125 years,” he said.

150 years ago, a golden spike completed the Transcontinental Railroad. One-hundred years ago, Engine 3417 began its journey that led to Hulen Park as "The Spirit of Cleburne".

To celebrate the Cleburne Railroad Museum will have activities for all ages, a special exhibit “From the Golden Spike to Engine 3417,” and a short video shown every 30-minutes, followed by helping re-enact the sending of a famous telegram once the Golden Spike completed the transcontinental track.
