Why are we not allowed to go into the cab any more why ws the fence put up ? Will it ever reopen to the public for train buffs again ?
the train in keller has been subject to attack not only from vandalism but local bizz folks trying to get rid of the train. they have gone as far as hiring scrappers to come out and cut up parts of the train car and remove parts illegally. seems the land being used for commercial use to fuel the beer joints and food joints across the grass would make them a lot of money after they buy up all the spaces. except the train being in the way. if you wanna see the train preserved support the old town keller merchants, and dont support the folks trying to remove it.
Railways in Texas expanded the economy and brought numerous people to help settle the land. It is part of our history and we need to to educate our young people on the importance of the rails. Keller should be proud that it was part of the Texas and Pacific family. Our past is our heritage, cultivate it.
The boxcar and bulkhead flat have been scrapped to make way for more parking. The passenger car is being moved and will be someone's house.
