Railroad Museum Weekend [1]

Congrats to the Feather River Rail Society for a terrific and successful weekend celebrating the Western Pacific Railroad Museum. With the loss of RR Days you made lemonade out of lemons and placed the emphasis where it always belonged on the WP and its history. Your narrated tours were exceptional with displays of many historical WP pieces and great stories included. Motorcar and loco cab rides were a great addition. Your hands on policy allows visitors to not only see but feel and experience the history, which most museums don’t. Really just wanted to say thank you to all involved and especially to those volunteers who travel great distances to give their time to this historic society and museum. It was refreshing and truly gratifying to return to the true meaning of this annual celebration. Maybe this is the beginning of a new chapter of “WP Railroad Days in Portola, CA.”

Nice work.

Eric and Christie Kroll
