Biermann says items from a private collection of railroad books and souvenirs will be up for grabs Saturday. Most of the items from the estate do not pertain to the Katy Depot or Missouri’s rail history, but they do have value for collectors or other parties interested in rail travel around the world. Biermann was approached by the daughter of the collection’s owner and she is excited that the artifacts will be used to help the depot in some way.

Proceeds from the Benefit and Bake Sale will provide funds for rotating exhibits to supplement the permanent displays at the facility. The sale starts at 10:00 a.m. and runs through 3:00 p.m. For more information visit The Katy Depot Website.
