All ages are welcome to ride. We have three club diesel engines that normally run the passenger trains, as well as private engines belonging to club members, but many times you will find a steam engine also running. We have specially designed cars for the young and the young at heart who enjoy hearing the clickety-clack of the rails. A newly designed car for standard-width wheelchairs is available for those needing special assistance.
At the Cypress Creek & Southern Railroad, we have a tower, Jackson Tower, where the dispatcher works by radio to keep the trains running smoothly and on time. Our new station is equipped with bathrooms and the loading platform provides for easy boarding.
A large gazebo provides weather protection for birthday parties and other group gatherings who use it during the run day. It is on a first-come first-serve basis and cannot be reserved. It's been known to accommodate 3 birthday parties at the same time. We share Zube Park, a Harris County Park, with soccer fields to the south of the Creek. Limited picnic facilities are available.
For our steam engines, we have a large turntable and steaming bay area. For loading and unloading of equipment, we provide an expertly designed transfer table. These facilities were designed and built by members of our club, a truly talented group.
But our original building, the M.O.W. (the Maintenance of Way Shed), is where the work has been done, the constructing of the track panels and switches, over 6,000 feet of mainline so far. There's more to come....
The FREE train rides that we provide each month|
are our way of sharing our love of the hobby with the community.
