HO Scale 1930’s Temple, Texas Historical Layout

In partnership with the Railroad and Heritage Museum, the HO group has constructed a layout modeling the Temple Santa Fe depot and roundhouse area as it existed in the steam era of the 1930s. The layout is the “Temple Historical Layout.”

Visitors must see the perfect model replicas of the Santa Fe depot, the Harvey House and the Temple Ice Plant.
