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!

We need your help to acquire and preserve this historic streetcar where it will join our fleet of historic equipment.
