Mission Statement:

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.


We run trains year round on weekends with special events, such as Day Out With Thomas, several times a year.

Volunteering for the Austin Steam Train Association (ASTA) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet people from around the world while working for a professional railroad organization. We have many volunteer opportunities for you to choose from. We provide all the training you need to step on board today.

Meet fellow train enthusiasts and make friends while entertaining guests on board our vintage train cars.
