Return to Railroaders Hall

Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, a world class museum of railroad history in Strasburg, PA.

RR Hall Plaque Exhibit.

To meet the growing demand for plaques to honor railroaders, the Museum's Railroaders Hall Plaque display has been rebuilt and expanded. With the help of a number of museum staff members and with financial support and volunteer leadership by the Friends of the Railroad Museum, the display is now larger, more attractive, and functional.

Angle view.Seen above is the museum's Restoration Manager Allan Martin, who took an initial concept and enhanced it, and then oversaw the craftsmanship. Now, there is room for thousands of more easily-viewed plaques, plus needed storage space. The nearby pedestal holds a local index of all plaques, to aid visitors in finding particular ones.

Proceeds from plaque purchases are dedicated to improving the exhibits and programs of the museum. The project is administered for the museum by the Friends of the Railroad Museum.
