“Cleburne Tracks – A Living Railroad Exhibit” will soon open at the JN Long Cultural Arts Complex in Cleburne. The HO guage tracks, model trains and buildings were donated by the Charles (Chuck) Worlow family. The exhibit was organized by Shane Hopkins and the American Historical Railroaders Association.
Charles Worlow spent 30 years building the exhibits and making the buildings. It was housed in the “train shack” on the Worlow property until the family donated the exhibit, along with family memorabilia and artifacts.
“This was too valuable an exhibit not to save, preserve and share with the public. It is our history” said Hopkins.
“We are proud that we can house this exhibit. It is an exciting addition to our cultural arts complex,” said Alden Nellis, president of Cleburne Friends of the Cultural Arts. “We love to watch the model trains running around on the tracks.”
Exhibit hours are 10-4 Mondays through Saturdays on the third floor of the historic 100 year-old JN Long Cultural Arts Complex main building at 425 Granbury Street, Cleburne.
