Got some cool old stuff? The Pacific Southwest Railway Museum (PSRM) in Campo is preparing to add another educational ride which will include Roy Athey’s Famous Alpine Train & Railroad that was donated last year (Read about it here), that will include an old western town and we are looking for tax deductible donations of misc items to include as part of this exhibit.

Items needed are:

Old barn wood
Usable construction materials
Usable dimensional lumber
Tin roofing (preferably with rust)
Old wagon wheels – metal or wood
An old buckboard
Wooden storage sheds
Old signs
An old windmill
Blacksmith items, anvil, tongs etc…..
Western memorabilia – horse tack, old milk cans, lanterns, etc…
Old mining equipment – wood wheel barrow, narrow gauge rail road track, old oar car, etc

If it is not listed and you think it might go well with a ride that is showing old mining history give us a call!
