Katy Texas is a Railroad town.100_1422

Founded out on the Texas Prairie as a Support point for railroad business. This most gracious Lady was on duty at the depot museum and was most informative and helpful.100_1415

Proud of it’s historical past, Katy’s

city fathers have faithfully restored

the old original  train depot.100_1416

Kept original to the extent that the

Period graffiti on the walls of the baggage handling area, drawn with coal lumps, some very talented, are still retained. Some of the charcoal work depicts of the era political statements and cartoon sketches.

100_1417 Admission is by donation and the souvenirs are very reasonably priced.


This is located right by I-10 and is easy to locate. 100_1419

If you are a steam rail fan, as we are, there are lots of cool steam era  displays here.


The Katy High School FFA Rodeo starts tomorrow night. The arena is located behind the High School and the Carnival rides started showing up today. Admission is $7. for Adults.  This rodeo has a good National reputation and is always a good show.  Yeh, we just couldn’t help ourselves, we had to go snoopin’ roun’ over there.
