Make plans to visit an upcoming open house and see our big HO scale layout. Our Back to School Open House is just ahead on the calendar. Save the dates!
Saturday, August 26, 2017 - 10am to 4pm
Sunday, August 27, 2017 - Noon to 4pm
Make plans to visit and see how a large HO scale model railroad is operated. Admission is free!
Society members will also demonstrate how to clean locomotive wheels and install couplers on freight cars so you can keep trains running better at home. Come visit the Mon Valley Railroad Historical Society to learn about a great hobby. We are located under the Black Bear Cafe at 128 Pleasant Street. Parking is available in the small parking garage beside the building, or just up the street behind the bank.
Thanks to everyone who visited for the recent Kid's Day festivities. It was great to see smling, happy faces watching the trains.
Open house details are published here a month or two beforehand. The historical society is located at 128 Pleasant Street in downtown Morgantown, W. Va., in the basement under the Black Bear Burritos.
We hope you can visit an open house event and join the fun as the Mon Valley Railroad Historical Society of West Virginia celebrates over 25 years of railroad building.
Check out these YouTube videos for a look at our model railroad.
