I've noticed in more than a few threads that there seems to be Large Scale railways set up in public parks around the country. Seems like I recall one or two in Texas and one somewhere on the east coast.
I'm doing a bit of research and I'd like to find out more about these facilities. I'd appreciate any info that you can share: locations, websites, club contacts, etc.
Thanks in advance..

Just so you know, the Texas Transportation Museum which SAGRES is a part of is located in McAllister Park, a city facility in San Antonio. The Houston Area Live Steamers are located in a Harris County park.
