Come help us show Southern California’s rail transportation history, growing and developing our Museum, preserving the irreplaceable artifacts of the railroads that built Southern California and the West. When you’re a member, you can take rides on operating rail equipment and even be trained to operate rail vehicles on the Museum railway. You can help restore parts of our collection or maintain operating equipment.

You’ll receive our monthly Gazette, which describes events, plans, operations, preservation activities, and the colorful history of our collection. You’ll get discounts on the Gift Shop’s books, videos, and DVD’s.
