New Braunfels Railroad Museum
Dining Car History
The New Braunfels Railroad Museum acquired RPCX138 in May 2009, and after mechanical work to meet FRA movement standards, BNSF and UP Railroads moved the car in freight trains to the Museum site in late May 2010. Four months and 1,000+ volunteer manhours later, the Doyle P. Bond Dining Car is ready for use.
With seating for 48 persons, the car is available for rent to the public for holiday parties, birthdays, annivesaries, showers, wedding receptions, business or organization meetings, or other special events.
The unique atmosphere of railroad dining can be recaptured for your special event. For more details, contact our dining car manager, at 830-237-1916.
