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.
