Volunteers Make It All Happen
From museum and railway operations to the continuous development of our archives -- Nearly all activity at the Western Railway Museum is carried out by dedicated volunteers. You are welcome to join us! Volunteers are needed in all departments. No experience is necessary and we provide all necessary training. All you need to bring is a willingness to work with a friendly, welcoming and passionate group of people!
Restoring A Legend
Thanks to our donors and many dedicated volunteers, Key System streetcar #271 will return to service in 2018! One of a group of ex-Lehigh Valley cars that launched the system in 1903, #271 is the first car obtained by BAERA, following an impromptu collection from members during a 1946 fan trip.
