Add a Point to the Map

Built in 1907 and restored in 1986, this historic train depot is now home to the New Braunfels Railroad Museum. The museum features a yard stocked with train cards from up to a century ago. The Boxcar Surf and Sportwear Car, once a New Braunfels landmark is now shown at the museum as well as a red caboose. Photos showing the restoration process of one of the most famous railroad cars of the collection, the Doyle P. Bond Dining Car, are on display. The Doyle P. Bond Dining Car is actually a 1922 Pullman Passenger Dining Car. Refurbished and polished up, it is again serving meals on wheels. During special events like Mother's Day, this dining car is packed. Children will get a kick out of the model railroads, letting their eyes guide them around the exhibits. Gifts are also available in the gift shop to make for a perfectly memorable experience.
