This is a historical museum that displays old train cars and railroad historical items to the public.
The target audience will be families, school groups, history enthusiasts and local tourists. The logo will need family friendly, but also show a classic historical style.
The name of this museum is very long, so I'm sure that designers may want to break it up into two lines. We are very open to new ideas here, so the designers have complete creative control.
We'd like to see something that has an icon of some sort in addition to the logo text, and we'd like the logo to work well at a variety of sizes, and even when its used with only one color.
If a designer chooses to illustrate a train car or locomotive, it will have to be accurate to the trains used in Texas historically. There is a dropbox link full of images and documents that can be used for inspiration in this area.
