Gulf Coast Chapter - NRHS promotes railroad preservation and
study through scholarships and other programs.
Each year, Gulf Coast Chapter NRHS/Houston
Railroad Museum offers a scholarship to the National Park Service's
Rail Camp at the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton,
here for more information about Rail
Camp. To apply for a Rail Camp scholarship, contact Doug Weiskopf.
The Gulf Coast Chapter NRHS & the Houston
Railroad Museum support scouting. Railroading Merit Badge
classes and Eagle Scout projects are usually offered by the museum.
But since we are closed for moving, there will be no scouting
programs offered for now. Please check back for updates
on when we these programs will resume.
The Houston Railroad Museum can provide
speakers on railroad history for your organization or corporate
meeting. For information, contact Past President Tom Marsh
or call 832-463-3017.
