WHy Trains?

Leander was established in 1882 on land sold by the Austin and Northwestern Railroad Co.. The town was named in honor of Leander “Catfish” Brown, one of the railroad officials responsible for the completion of the line. The railroad established Leander, and today it is the only stop outside the city of Austin on the Capital Metro rail.  To commemorate and honor both our past and future, the Leander Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center is proud to introduce the Leander Trail of Trains.

“The concrete trains are trademarked and will only be available through the Chamber. They are a unique and beautiful way to celebrate the heritage of our community! Our goal is to have a custom train in every corner of the community,” said to Bridget Brandt, Leander Chamber of Commerce President.


OWN A CONCRETE TRAIN

The concrete train project was created by the Leander Leadership Class of 2017 to bring Leander together as a community. Anyone can buy a concrete train, regardless of whether you’re a Chamber member, a business or individual, a local, or live a few miles away. Just call our office at 512-259-1907 to get all the details.
