KRUM, Texas (AP) — A newly completed mural pays tribute to a North Texas town's railroad history.

The Denton Record-Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1kRgpTB ) reports artist Justine Wollaston on Thursday put the finishing touches on the mural in Krum (kruhm) featuring a locomotive.

Volunteers with Krum Bright and Beautiful helped raise more than $3,000 for the mural stretching 13 feet by 70 feet and located 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.
