The museum’s shop is back to work on various projects around the museum with new implemented safety guidelines to make sure everyone is safe and healthy. The LRV maintenance crew returned with two goals in mind. Return San Diego MTS 1018 to service and continue work on the SF Muni 1258.
Dear Members and Friends of the Museum,
The Bay Area Electric Railroad Association’s fiscal year ended on September 30th. As most of you are aware, the Museum has been closed to the public in an abundance of caution since early March due to the COVID-19 emergency. We share the same mix of emotions as all of you have been having during these times and are anxious to return to normal. We are looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces on our historic electric interurban trains and streetcars out here at Rio Vista Junction when we are able to reopen. It has been disappointing to all of us here at the Western Railway Museum not to be able to be open every weekend or to offer all of our favorite events like Pumpkin Patch, Scenic Limited, and Santa Train to our visiting public.
