Default Hello, extreme newbie needing advice here!

I stumbled across this site while researching the possibility of adding a motor to my cruiser bike. I need something for a short commute to my local rail station, but they do not allow scooters or mopeds on the train.
As a middle aged grandmother, I could not lift one onto the train even if they did!

My bike is extremely lightweight for a cruiser, about 22 lbs, so even with a motor added I could still lift and take it with me.
But I am not sure if a motor would work with my bike, so I am hoping to get some practicle advice and suggestions here.
I am open to the idea of purchasing another bike to motorize if need be, but my 1st choice would be my current one (hey, it's cute).
I am in Texas, so would have to stay at 49cc, but my commute is less than 2 miles on side roads, so that is enough power for me.
My son-in-law is a motorcycle mechanic, my son does custom paint and bodywork, and my husband is a longtime flatland rider and overall bike genius, so I will have no issues with installation and upkeep.
I have attached pictures of my bike.
Any suggestions? And thank you in advance!
