The Houston Area Live Steamers is an organization to devoted to live steam modeling. On the third Saturday of each month, the group offers free rides to the public aboard diesel and steam engine model trains along their 4700-foot track in Zube Park.
The Cypress Creek & Southern Railroad track takes passengers on a scenic loop ride through the park in Northwest Harris County over miniature bridges and past model windmills—all crafted by the Live Steamers group. People of all ages turn out to ride the model railroad and smell the steam engines as they roll down the tracks.
A large gazebo provides weather protection for groups and birthday parties, but this is on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved. Picnic facilities are also available in Zube Park.
Run day is the third Saturday of each month, March through November. Check the website to confirm run days.
