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!
We Need Your Help
Restoration of Sacramento Northern interurban combine 1005 is the signature project of our talented restoration shop volunteers. The museum is currently soliciting donations for one of the final steps of this work - installation of replica historic pressed glass windows. Authentic replicas of these windows are being created by a midwestern artist for installation on SN 1005. Donations of any size will enable us to fund production and installation. When making your donation, please indicate "Restricted Fund 007." Thank you for your support!
