Due to health concerns in our area at this time, the museum will be closed until further notice. We are meeting regularly and reworking some displays so that we can reopen safely for the health of our visitors, volunteers and employees. We will reopen as soon as possible.
Welcome to the New Braunfels Railroad Museum also known as, the New Braunfels Historic Railroad and Modelers Society (NBHRMS). We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of railroad artifacts and education. The museum is open to the public at NO CHARGE and all are welcome!
Our members have a diverse cross section of interests including railroad history, artifact collection, railfanning (Railfans are folks who love to observe trains in action), and model railroading in all scales.
We have a variety of artifacts and photographs from the golden age of railroading on display. Many of them are directly related to past New Braunfels operations of the International & Great Northern, MOPAC, and MKT railroads.
Right next to the museum, is one of the busiest North/South Union Pacific railroad tracks. Over 30 trains pass by each day. Many of these trains run between Canada and Mexico, so it is not unusual to see Canadian and Mexican locomotives.
The San Antonio to Chicago AMTRAK passenger train passes by twice per day (Northbound in the morning and Southbound in the early evening).
The New Braunfels Railroad Museum is a great place for the RailFan on the Union Pacific main line!
