When was Victoria Station there? Did Antone's occupy this space later? I moved from Houston in 1978, and I vaguely remember going there back in the 60's-70's? Was it close to the intersection of South Main and OST?

the rail car i am thinking of was on n. braeswood off of main. i remember it had different compartments to sit in. it was like walking through a maze. it was slightly upscale,

i also remember the one on kirby that i believe was an antones, and they were two different places.

I believe that those rail cars were orginally Victoria's Station and then later became Antone's. It was on that triangular strip of land where Main and OST come together.

You are right, I remember when it was Victoria Station, late '70's - 80's. And that was down the cross street that the pony rides were located on (S.Main), at Kiddie Wonderland. There is a hamburger joint that has been there for many years on Kirby, across the street from Droubi's (VS). Can't remember the name.

Railhead was on Richmond Avenue. There was also a Victoria's Station (not sure where). BOth of those had train cars. Didn't Sonny Look's have a knight on horseback out front? Was there also a Look's Depot? I seem to remember that.

Was it called Railhead or Boxcar?
