Donations of railroad-related items are always welcome, particularly if there is a relationship with an East Texas community or a railroad that served the region.  Such items are often useful in a museum for general display, or specific exhibitions.
 

Examples include:

  • Collections of paper items such as stamps, tickets, photographs, advertisements, etc.
     

  • Literature, DVDs etc.
     

  • Model railroad items (buildings, track locomotives, cars, etc.  .... see below)
     

  • Railroad art
     

  • Railroad equipment
