May 10 is National Train Day.

The Amarillo Railroad Museum recognized the holiday with an open house.

The day was started by Amtrak yearas ago, primarily to promote train travel.

The event featured an exact replica of the Santa Fe Railroad Line circa 1950 through 1971.

Kids under 12 received a free pass for the event
