Tomball City Council approved the architectural concept for the Texas Railroading Heritage Museum at Tomball and got a first look at the plans to construct the building in downtown. The two-story museum would be built on a 3.2-acre property on the east side of Walnut Street between Fannin Street and McPhail Street. The building was designed by Harry Gendel Architects and will be adjacent to the depot in downtown Tomball. The museum will feature a library, gift shop and viewing areas to see the trains on the railroad tracks that run through downtown Tomball.
It will also display two locomotives, six passenger cars, three freight cars, two cabooses and other objects.
