Become a Member

Help preserve West Virginia’s railroad history by becoming a member of the West Virginia Railroad Museum.

Your annual membership dues help fund projects, and each new member brings us closer to our goals. Showing your interest by becoming a member also helps us to obtain financial grants.

In return, members receive news and project information via our quarterly newsletter The Gandy Dancer, access to special events, and perhaps most importantly, the rare opportunity to put your hands on history and help restore the museum collection.

Special Offer – Join at the Contributor Level or higher, and you will receive one of our limited edition, signed and numbered “Fireballs Converge in Elkins” prints free! This also applies to current members who upgrade their membership!

Currently, all membership levels will receive a membership card, a subscription to The Gandy Dancer, and the opportunity to partake of summer restoration work sessions as well as volunteer at the Museum.

Our membership levels are:

Individual (USA) $30.00

Individual (outside USA) $35.00

Family (USA) $45.00

Student (age 13-17) $15

Contributor $100.00 – Membership includes limited edition “Fireballs Converge in Elkins” print or a t-shirt or a cap

Partner $300.00 – Membership includes limited edition “Fireballs Converge in Elkins” print, t-shirt, and cap

If you have already renewed for this year, and would like to upgrade your membership to a higher level and receive the additional benefits, send your request to WVRRM, PO Box 203, Elkins WV 26241 with the appropriate difference in membership dues, designating the level you would like and your T-shirt size if necessary.
