SBHRS has collected artifacts that represent railroading from its beginnings. Our collection concentrates on western railroads, but we also have a reasonable selection of items from other parts of the country and Canada. While some of the larger items are shown here, we also have many small items, including lanterns, tools, signs, railroad right-of-way maps, former railroad employee service items, and railroad operations papers. Our collection and displays are continually growing and changing. Some of the materials are kept as part of the library.
The artifacts we have on display are either owned by the SBHRS or on loan to the museum. Please contact us if you would like to loan or donate an item to the museum. Due to our IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit status, we can give you a tax deductible receipt.
