Today, the TVRHA continues its mission as a non-profit educational organization to promote public interest in the railroading industry through the collection and preservation of historic artifacts, rolling-stock, and locomotives; and through the preservation of local and regional railroad history.

The TVRHA has acquired and is currently restoring a small collection of 1920's to 1950's-era freight cars significant to Fort Worth's railroading heritage. All work performed by the Association is on a voluntary basis, and the group is currently funded by dues and donations.
The Association's "pride n' joy" is former Angelina & Neches River #208, a 1912-vintage Baldwin 2-6-0 "Mogul" type steam locomotive, currently located in French Lick, Indiana, at the Indiana Railway Museum. The TVRHA is also working to establish the Texas Railroad Museum, a rail historical & interpretive center in the Fort Worth metroplex. It is planned to return #208 to Fort Worth to be displayed at the new museum facility.
