You can help keep vintage railroading alive in Central Texas by becoming an Austin Steam Train Association donor. The mission of the Austin Steam Train Association is to preserve, interpret and re-create the first-hand experience of historic steam-era railroading for the enjoyment and edification of today’s families and the generations to come. Gifts from our donors help “fill the gap” between the revenue generated from ticket sales and what we need to keep providing an authentic railroading experience on a year-round basis.

Every donation to our passenger car restoration fund goes directly to restoring and maintaining our fleet!  As a nonprofit, 501c(3) organization, your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
