Public Run Days

Free Rides

On the third Saturday of each month, March through November, the members of Houston Area Live Steamers offer FREE rides to the public on our track map

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.

We operate a large scale model railroad, not an amusement park ride. For your safety you must follow our safe riding rules. Please follow train crew instructions at all times;
  • Always face forward.
  • Keep your feet on your car.
  • Do not lean out and attempt to grab anything or you may disrupt the balance of the train.
  • While taking photographs or video be careful not to lean out.
  • When the ride is over, do not get off until the conductor says it is safe to do so.
Finally, smile, have fun, and consider leaving a donation to support our operations.
Thank you for riding with us!
