Now you can adopt a train — passenger or freight, locomotive or car — from the Museum’s world-class collection of historic rolling stock. Choose your all-time favorite or a piece that you feel deserves acknowledgment. Your 12-month, symbolic adoption entitles you to a number of benefits. It makes a great gift, memorial recognition or promotion for your business or organization.

Your 12-month, symbolic train adoption entitles you to:

  • A thank you/adoption certificate
  • A three to five-minute, customized video of the adopted train*
  • A color photo of the train
  • A sign acknowledging your adoption was placed next to the train
  • An acknowledgment of your adoption in the Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania’s annual report.

You contribute $500.00 minimum per piece of equipment for a 12-month adoption. The choice of the train to adopt is offered on a first-come basis. All adoption funds benefit the nonprofit Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and will be designated for wherever the need is greatest.
