OUR MISSION

The purpose of the West Virginia Railroad Museum, Inc. is to be a cultural resource dedicated to educating visitors and the community about West Virginia’s railroad history.

This mission will be accomplished through the collection, preservation and interpretation of significant locomotives, rolling stock, artifacts, photographs and memorabilia directly related to railroads and railroading in West Virginia. In addition to static exhibits, select pieces of equipment in the collection are restored and operated throughout the year to demonstrate steam, gasoline, and diesel technology and provide visitors with a first-hand experience of our railroad history through the sights, sounds, and sensations of a train ride.

The West Virginia Railroad Museum will stimulate economic tourism development by promoting the essence and spirit of West Virginia’s railroad heritage through educational programs including operations, safety and interpretation of historic railroad equipment, structures, engineering and trackage.
