Preserving history is fundamental and for the Western Railway Museum that means preserving large railway cars in addition to other smaller artifacts.  The Car House Four project will open a new chapter for the museum by providing state-of-the-art protection, preserving our collection for the enjoyment of future generations.  By replacing the existing Car House One, which is reaching the end of its practical lifespan, this project will also make way for the future Electric Railway Hall display facility. 

As we look forward to 2024 and beyond, our vision and building plans for are of the utmost importance for the museum. We are working diligently to transform a once unused corner of our campus, into the beautiful rendering you see pictured above.

The next step is pouring the concrete foundation and erecting the metal building structure. With the final design submitted to the County, we are excited to announce that the construction can begin as soon as the building permit is issued! As we embark upon this next leg of the journey, will you help us fund the completion of Phase II by raising $150,000? Together, with your support, we can accomplish so much.

Won't you consider helping us bring this important project to completion?  Your valuable support will allow Car House Four to begin preserving our artifacts soon. Your support of this project, as a member, volunteer, and donor are critical to preserving our historic collection with the best possible care in a state-of-the-art facility.
