Southern California Railway Museum

Bringing Southern California’s Railway History to Life!

In these uncertain times, the Museum needs your help and support.

We hope you and your family are in good spirits and health. We’re doing everything possible while we’re closed to sustain the Southern California Railway Museum and continue to ensure the health and safety of our employees and volunteers.

We’re usually funded by ticket sales, gift store sales, venue rentals, and donor support. This revenue helps us pay our staff, keep the lights on, continue our restoration efforts, and maintain the Museum’s historical treasures. Even when visitors aren’t coming in, we still have expenses and we look to our donors. We have to adapt quickly to the changing reality of these uncertain times.

Our community needs us more than ever. And we need you. Please make a one-time donation or support SCRM annually with monthly giving, if you can.

You can still help if you can’t donate at this time. Advocate for us by sharing our mission with family members and friends. A quick mention on your social media would mean the world to us.

In times like this, we’re reminded of how interconnected we all are. Thank you for being part of our community. Without you, none of what we do would be possible.

Stay safe and well.
