KRUM (March 24, 2014) A newly completed mural pays tribute to the railroad history of the North Texas town of Krum.
Artist Justine Wollaston put the finishing touches on the mural Thursday, which features a locomotive.
Volunteers with Krum Bright and Beautiful helped raise more than $3,000 for the mural, which measures 13 feet by 70 feet on the side of a downtown building.
Mary Jo Warren with the garden group says the mural is a gift to the people of Krum, about 35 miles north of Fort Worth.
Information from the Krum Heritage Museum indicates the town was founded by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in 1886 and named for railroad official Charles K. Krum.
The mural is about 100 feet west of a railroad crossing.
