Take part in the Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum’s first annual Transportation Day on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  If it has wheels, you will probably find it here during April’s free Family Day.

There will be a Humvee from Ft. Hood, a Scott & White ambulance, a school bus from Temple ISD, a fire truck and lots of other vintage and classic cars to explore. Garlyn Shelton and Don Ringler car dealerships will feature the latest in hybrid and electric cars.

The City of Temple SWAT team will also be onsite along with the Temple Police Department, who will feature a police cruiser, while promoting bike safety. Amtrak and Operation Lifesaver will inform guests about train travel and safety, while visitors explore a real railroad caboose and ride on the museum’s railroad handcars. Temple Public Library’s “What do you Geek?” program will also be on hand, along with the Bookmobile.  Make sure to wear comfortable shoes for exploring.

The Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum hosts a Family Day event on the first Saturday of each month. Attendance at the event is free. Regular admission charges apply to view the rest of the museum. The museum is located in the Santa Fe Depot at 315 West Avenue B in downtown Temple. The museum is open 10am – 4pm, Tuesday – Saturday.

For more information about this and upcoming Family Day events at the Temple Railroad & Heritage Museum, please call 254.298.5172 or visit www.rrhm.org.
