Map to the Museum's Equipment Visitors are welcome to tour our museum on Saturdays from 9AM to 12 Noon. From Mid march through October (and other Saturdays weather permitting), our visitors are welcomed aboard our maintenance of way train (Little Yellow Train) for a short rail excursion to not only learn but experience how the rail workers in the mid 1900's commmuted to their work site. All train rides are subject to crew availability, weather, commercial rail activity, and other factors beyond our control.

We welcome all interested persons to become a member. No prior experience with railroads or museums is necessary. Members receive our monthly publication The Mail Pouch that outlines our events and railroad related news in our area.

Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at the Central Rappahannock Library, located at 2607 Salem Church Road in Fredericksburg, VA. Meetings promptly start at 7:00 PM.
