Austin Steam Train Association

The mission of the Austin Steam Train Association (ASTA) is to preserve, interpret and re-create the first-hand experience of historic steam railroading for the enjoyment and edification of today’s families and the generations to come.

Celebrating 24 years of service in 2016, ASTA offers a year-round choice of excursions. Each route has it own distinctive charm, each one a fascinating journey back in time.

A team of dedicated volunteers are currently restoring our 1916 steam engine, Southern Pacific 786, with the goal to return it to service in the near future. In its place is our 1960 Alco diesel locomotive, one of only two operating examples of its kind.
