Also, take a moment to read about our area history in Houston North Shore Railway by Charles C. Robinson and Paul L. DeVerter, II. From the Introduction, "The Houston North Shore Railway (HNS), when opened in June 1927, was the last new electric interurban railway completed in the United States." As of 2000, "the old HNS exists as a diesel freight-only branch operated by the Union Pacific Railroad (UP)." ALL ABOARD!
