For the museum to maintain its high level of quality, requires a great deal of behind-the-scenes work and support. With only a handful of employees, our museum could not operate without a cadre of committed, long-term community volunteers. Help us to present, interpret, celebrate and preserve the heritage of railroading in the Alleghenies, as well as the life and times of the railroad and shop workers in Railroad City, Altoona, PA.
