Austin Steam Train Ride
I finally got to go on a short train ride via the Austin Steam Train. This was a basic excursion from Cedar Park to Bertram. The train stopped at Bertram for 15 minutes. During that time you can explore the Bertram depot. That 15 minute stop gives them time to get the engine turned around. After that it's back to Cedar Park.
MOTOR Texas cruised to the Bryan - College Station area on May 17, 2014. The first thing we do is check out the old town area, and we were not disappointed! Bryan has done a good job at maintaining the historic buildings on North Main Street. We relaxed with a burger and beverage at the Chicken Oil Co. on the way out.
We we're pressed for time on this whirlwind May 2014 weekend trip so we didn't get a lot of photos of College Station. However we did go to the Texas A&M Bonfire Memorial. What a moving and inspirational tribute.
Texas World Speedway
On a trip to Bryan and College Station on May 18, 2014, we stopped by Texas World Speedway. Long time gearheads know about this old track, but most others outside the local area have no clue there is a super speedway in Texas. For how much longer, who knows.
Dime Box is one of those small communities where you and your camera stand out like a sore thumb. So, we usually don't tarry too long unless we meet a local and strike up a conversation. Which we did.

Brenham Car Show
On our July 2012 road trip to Brenham we stumbled upon a car show at the Hot Nights Cool Tunes event held in the historic district. We had a great time and met some cool folks.
Round Top Texas
July 7, 2012 visit to Round Top, Texas. What an interesting town! Do plan to eat at Royers Round Top Cafe!
Caldwell County Museum
While we were at the Chisholm Trail Roundup in Lockhart on June 9, 2012 we checked out a couple of museums. This one is a must see!
Little Valley Auto Ranch
On our way back to Austin from Temple on October 3, 2011, we discovered Little Valley Auto Ranch. This large field of classic iron is located on 190 just a few miles west of IH 35.
