The Western Pacific Railroad referred to the Men & Women that they employed as "Willing People".  It was these folks that made the Western Pacific a legendary figure in Railroad History.  The railroad wasn't a job for WP's employees, it was a proud lifestyle.  And the Western Pacific wasn't just a company... it was a FAMILY


The spirit of the "Willing People" lives on at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum everyday.  Our members carry on that Mission the minute they walk in the gate.  Regardless of task, regardless of profession, gender, age, or level of railroad knowledge, our members happily volunteer their time and skills to continue that tradition started 100 years ago on the Western Pacific.  And we'd love to welcome YOU into our family!
