Have Your Own Seat in Our New Train Car
Last month we launched a fundraiser to help with the construction of a brand new train car. The museum has been expanding the operating season, first with the Christmas Express and now with the upcoming first Halloween Train. More cars are needed to keep up with demand on busy days and allow us to accommodate more people which will raise additional funds.
The new covered car will cost approximately $30,000 including volunteers and donations. It will be outfitted with 20 seats adding an additional 40 passengers per ride. People wishing to contribute $250 to the project as a family supporter, a memorial, or a corporate donation will have their name engraved on a brass plaque mounted on one of the seats where it would be visible to thousands of visitors each year. Charitable tax receipts are available for donations.
Additionally the right to name the new car can be negotiated by discussing the opportunity with the Manager, Vicki Holman at (250) 715-1113 ext 24
