As Santa hauls gifts, up to 300,000 freight cars could soon haul a lot more
SAN ANGELO, TX – Santa’s arrival at the San Angelo Railway Museum brought joy again this year to the children and families in attendance. In addition to the excitement and photo ops, the arrival of Santa brought up the pending expansion of cargo train service through San Angelo.
“I don’t know if people know that the rail line is going to be expanding as soon as they clear the security for the international bridge,” said railway museum manager Karl Kujawa. “I was told that there would be as many as 300,000 freight cars coming across that bridge from Mexico, eventually.”
As that project progresses we’ll work to bring you timely updates. The railway museum also hosted the Shop Small Event where local vendor booths were set up.
