Volunteers Make It All Happen
Track and overhead lines work, restoration projects, museum and railway operations, the continuous development of our archives -- Nearly all activity at the Western Railway Museum is carried out by dedicated volunteers. Won't you consider joining us in the new year? Volunteers are needed in all departments. No experience is necessary and we will provide all necessary training. All you need to bring is a willingness to work with a friendly, welcoming and passionate group of people!
Special Events For The Whole Family
Our family memberships are one of the best deals going for affordable family entertainment. We've been busy planning a variety of special events of all kinds. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in our shady 2 acre park and enjoy the festivities. As always, admission tickets are good for rides all day on our historic electric interurban trains and streetcars.
Working to constantly improve our museum - all thanks to you!
The Western Railway Museum is a project reflecting many years of work by many hands. With rare exceptions, all museum projects and programming are the product of the hard work of our volunteers, and the generous support of our donors. Thanks to your support during our summer 2016 campaign, the museum's beautiful Laflin Park will see significant improvements this year. Meanwhile in the restoration shop, work on our Birney car Sacramento Northern #62 is well underway. For more information, click here to download our 2016 End Of Year Report and Annual Appeal. Thank You for supporting the continuous improvement of the Western Railway Museum!
