Local Railroad Museum Reducing Cost of Inventory to Raise Money

By Boomer Staff | June 1st, 2016

The Richmond Railroad Museum will be holding a sale to make room for new merchandise.

The Richmond Railroad Museum will be holding a “White Elephant Sale Fund Raiser” the second weekend of June. On sale will be extra copies of books, VHS tapes, tools, prints, pictures and various other items. These materials have collected in the museum and gift shop over the years and have not found a permanent home. To make room for new merchandise, these items need to be sold at reduced prices to clear the shelves and cupboards. Friday and Saturday, June 10 and 11, The Railroad Museum will be open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.  On Sunday, June 12th the museum will be open from 1 to 4.

Also on Sunday, June 11th the first of our Flood Wall Tours will take place at the Museum at 2 p.m. Historical sites will be pointed out along the way by one of our trained guides. Bring your camera – there will be breath-taking views of the river and the city.

You can check out the museum on the web. You can view a live webcam in the model room by clicking on the “model train” button.  Admission to the museum is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.

The Richmond Railroad Museum is located at 102 Hull St. at the foot of Mayo’s Bridge and is operated by the Old Dominion Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, Inc., a voluntary, non-profit Virginia educational organization.
