Whether your interests lie in the past or the present, the WVRM has functional displays that will interest you. Get a feeling for railroading in the 1880s as you visit our vintage TH&I freight depot, or take a look at modern mainline operations from our elevated train watching platform, dedicated to the memory of Society Charter Member and Haley operator Clee J. Sprague.
Yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s railroaders all meet at the WVRM.
The WVRM is a place where railroad history comes alive. Visitors are welcomed and encouraged to roll up their sleeves and see what it was like to work on the railroad for themselves.
Learn how to line up a train in one of the towers. Sit at the operator’s desk and fill out a train order. If you’re feeling bold, you can even brush up on your Morse code! At the WVRM, we understand that trying things for yourself is half the fun!
