For more than a century, Altoona was one of the most important rail facilities in the United States. The city was home to the Altoona Works, the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) repair and maintenance shops, locomotive construction facility, and test department. Constructed inside what was formerly the Master Mechanics Building of the PRR Juniata Shops, the Railroaders’ Memorial Museum is dedicated to revealing, interpreting, commemorating and celebrating the significant contributions of railroaders and their families to American life and industry.
This Railroaders Museum pin can be a hat or lapel pin. Size approx 1.5″ x 1.5″.
