As a nonprofit public benefit educational institution, the Western Railway Museum relies on charitable contributions to preserve, restore, and operate our collection of authentic, historic electric railway artifacts. Donations also support our educational programs that serve 1000 students and educators each year, as well as buy materials needed to conserve, catalogue, and manage the tens-of-thousands of historic photographs, documents, books, maps, and histories in the F.M. Smith Memorial Library and Archives.

Also sign up for Amazon Smile to help support the museum! Amazon donates a portion of your purchase to the Western Railway Museum. Find us by searching "Bay Area Electric Railway Association". It's FREE at no added cost and helps the museum!


Please make a contribution today to support historic preservation at the Western Railway Museum. Donations are vital to our success, and support museum operations, such as:

  • Deferred facilities maintenance and repairs to existing buildings (some over 50 years old!).
  • Employing professional staff to promote the Museum, conduct educational programs for schools, and develop new public activities.
  • Expand our maintenance and restoration shop facilities so that our volunteers can be safer and more productive while working on our historic train equipment.
