Rails Around Houston

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

I just picked up this book at Costco earlier this afternoon, where I happened to notice a fairly substantial stack of copies on one of the book tables. It is obviously a labor of love and from the few pages I've dipped into it so far looks to be fascinating to anyone interested in local history as well as railfans.
