The museum is very grateful for the all of the donations we receive. Many of these donations are books and items from railroad fans’ collections that are not given with the intention of being part of the museum’s permanent collection, but rather are given for the sole purpose of raising money for exhibits and programs. After due process, we are able to offer these items for sale in the museum store.
