Attention Railroad Collectors!

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.

Available Now:
Framed Virginia & Truckee rolling stock photographs!
Locals may recognize these large framed photographs from when they hung in the McDonald’s on South Carson Street. McDonald’s is now under renovation and they have graciously donated these to the museum.  There are six available for sale.  Come into the museum store and check them out!  They won’t last long!
