This addition contains the collection donated by the Sunbelt Historical Trust formerly located in their museum at Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Other exhibits include numerous lighted showcases full of interesting memorabilia, model train layouts, tools and equipment used by railroaders and a re-creation of a Pullman car interior. The structure will also contain an extensive magazine library to compliment the museum's vast railroad book collection. Formal dedication of the new facility will be announced soon. Here are a few pictures of the renovation progress.




    The Railroad Museum of Oklahoma's popular "Breakfast in the Wanda Lee" ended another successful season in May. Head chef Bob Krieg along with his wonderful wife Rena and grandson Carson Combest deserve everyone's thanks for the fantastic food and fun atmosphere they provided each month. If you want a return engagement this fall, please let Bob know you will support the program through your presence and donations. Thanks again, Bob and crew. We appreciate you!

    Operation Lifesaver is a very successful program teaching highway-rail grade crossing safety and depends on a trained core of volunteers who make presentations to school children, adults, law enforcement and truck and bus drivers.
