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!
Scenic Limited special trains return in April!
Board our special 3-car train for a liesurely scenic trip through rural Solano County and enjoy the beautiful spring countryside! A small extra fare secures a seat in our vintage restored observation lounge car, where refreshments are served by our friendly volunteer staff. Scenic Limited special trains run at 11:00, 12:30 and 2:00 on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout April.
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!
