Item Donations

The museum accepts donations of model railroading items and railroad artifacts on a case by case basis. Model railroading items are typically used in Youth Programs or taken to the Museum’s annual sale to be put back out into the hobby and raise funds for the museum.

Railroad artifacts need approval through the Collections Committee.  View Collections Management Policy Here. 

The value of donated items is determined by the donor. As a 501(c)(3) organization you will receive a receipt for your donation for your tax records.
