Thank you for visiting our website. As some of you may know, effective December 2020, the Staunton Mall closed and with that closing the Museum lost its home. We have packed away our trains and layouts and will soon begin a search for a new location.
We have saved an extensive portion of our layout modules, club owned equipment, railroad memorabilia and artwork. Our goal is to secure a new location so we can once again provide our community with the best model railroad museum possible and see our wonderful supporters again. We will announce our reopening on this website once we are back in operation.
Due to the pandemic, we will not be having our Model Railroad Show and Sale in May in 2021 – but may try to do one in the Fall – stay turned to this website for updates.
We are a non-profit 501c3 organization (meaning you can count them as deductions on your taxes) and we would welcome your support as we search for a new home. It will most likely cost us more than what we have incurred in recent years – so your donations would be very much appreciated.
Donations can be sent to:
Augusta County Railroad Museum
P.O. Box 806

Thank you again for your support over the years.
The mission of the Augusta County Railroad Museum is to encourage interest in the history of Railroading and to promote the hobby of the model Railroading. This is accomplished through museum displays and operating model train layouts that are open to the public free of charge, and through educational outreach.
In addition to our model train layouts, the Museum features a large selection of railroad art that depicts railroad scenes and steam, diesel, and electric locomotives. Many of the trains in these paintings no longer exist. Along the walls, you will also see shelves with model trains and artifacts such as lanterns and signs from real railroads. Some of these models were manufactured decades ago and are now collector’s items.
Many of our models and exhibits are highly detailed, fragile, and expensive. Enjoy your visit, but please do not touch the models or exhibits. Parents, please supervise young children.
Our club features several different operating scale layouts, including: Lionel Standard gauge O, G, HO, and N scales and ON 30.
