AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — An audit has found no big problems with a railroad museum group in the Texas Panhandle that's disbanding and some funds could be returned to Pottery County.

County commissioners on Monday reviewed an audit of the Santa Fe Railway Historical Museum in Amarillo. Leaders of the nonprofit group voted Jan. 10 to disband amid funding, location and ownership issues. The organization has nearly $372,000.

Potter County has donated nearly $400,000 to the group since 2006.

The president of the defunct museum, Walter Wolfram, says leaders are checking with state officials on the proper way to close. Returning all donations to private parties would leave nearly $158,000 that could be returned to Potter County.

The unrelated Amarillo Railroad Museum has offered to accept some of the other group's items for exhibit.
