One foot of Kerrville's railroad

A good friend at the City of Kerrville brought by one foot of the railroad rail from part of the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad line which served Kerrville until the early 1970s.  I am old enough to remember the trains which traveled to Kerrville about once a week.  This part of the track was used for many years, and I'm glad to add it to my collection of Kerrville and Kerr County items.

"That's real Kerrville dirt on there," he told me. Don't think I'll wash it off.  Many loads of livestock, wool, and mohair traveled over this piece of iron.
