Step Back in Time...

The WPRM has over 100 pieces of rolling stock alone in our collection for our visitors to enjoy.  Among these are an example of the Mighty "Centennial", a Union Pacific DDA40X locomotive, the largest diesel locomotive ever built at over 98 feet long!  Our Western Pacific 2001 ushered in an entirely new era of Diesel Locomotive technology as it was the first turbocharged locomotive in America.  The Western Pacific 805-A is the "Belle" of our fleet, as it was built to pull the famous "California Zephyr".  Speaking of the Zephyr, the museum has many cars and artifacts of "The most talked about train in America".  We also have one of the largest collections of cabooses in the country, and we invite you to ride a few of them to experience for yourself what it's like to be a freight Conductor!  Enjoy Railroading in its "native habitat! "

 

The Feather River Rail Society holds one of North America's largest collections of archives, photos and artifacts dedicated to a single railroad family.  The collection is held by two departments of the FRRS.

The Archive Department manages paperwork, photographs and other archive material.

The Western Pacific Railroad Museum is responsible for working artifacts ranging from small items like lanterns and signals to full size rolling stock and locomotives.
