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

Preserving a Historic Railroad Clock

Workers remove historic clock
A feature on the front of the Museum since 1983, the historic clock that came from the Pennsylvania Railroad's Broad Street Station in Philadelphia, has been moved to the new clock tower above the main entrance.

The Museum's respected Restoration Department took this opportunity to address the clock's age and exposure to the elements.

Welding.

Painting.

In addition, the clock's mechanism underwent renovation.

Although fixing clocks isn't the usual task, there isn't much that the Museum's skilled Restoration staff cannot handle!
