JUST A FEW SAMPLES OF DONATED MEMORABILIA

The next day was a scorcher, hot, hot, hot, while loading up 3 trucks full of railroad memorabilia....

The Society received uncountable large railroad pictures, huge railroad art work, jumbo railroad posters made out of wood, historical railroad memorabilia, railroad signals, antique firehose wheels, antique scale, antique jumbo cash register, too much to mention, and it all was set aside for the Las Vegas Railroad Society's future Museum.

All the Las Vegas Railroad Society needs now is  a BUILDING inside Las Vegas' official 'Railroad Heritage Park' to display it all.
