2022 Western Pacific Railroad Historical Convention

Special Sunday Events


The 2022 WP Convention, being held May 12-14, 2022 in Reno, Nevada, will end with an exclusive Museum Day on Sunday, May 15 for those attending the WP Convention. Convention attendees will board a charter bus, or drive themselves, to the Western Pacific Railroad Museum where they will be given the first public opportunity to ride behind restored steam locomotive Western Pacific 0-6-0 165. Guided tours of the collection will also be offered and other special operations are in the works. In addition, convention attendees will be able to board a shuttle bus that takes them to the home of FRRS member Chris Skow, where they will be able to experience his spectacular garden railway and tour his collection of Western Pacific artifacts.

This event will be exclusive for those attending the WP Convention and the museum will be closed to the public and non-working members on that day.
