History association thanked for assistance

Dear editor,

We want to thank the Rockdale Historical Society and Bert Dockall for their offering at their annual auction of a special day on the Austin Steam Train from Leander to Burnet and back.

After helping us with the arrangements, our “conductor” was Bert, himself, who gave our Houston grandsons and their friends the full tour.

We were comfortable in the private caboose and it was a special and memorable event for everyone riding the rails on a wonderful spring day.

The kids were still talking about it when they left for home.

We appreciate the Historical Society, and their connection to the age of the railroad.

Thanks again!

Jane and Harvey Holliman hholliman@people pc.com
