Your membership in the Amarillo Railroad Museum, Inc. means more than fellowship and fun! It also means that you are committed to helping us preserve the incredible railroad history of the Texas Panhandle! The ARM is wholly a volunteer organization, and every dollar goes directly to support our activities. Already, we have full sized exhibits to restore and display, a building to house a model railroad, and numerous other worthy tasks. Won't you join now? Be a part of this fun and important organization today!
At first glance, our monthly dues may seem high, but there are good reasons for the rates. We want members who are committed to the success of the museum. By pursuing this commitment, we have been able to buy land, construct a building, build a scale model railroad, preserve railroad equipment and artifacts, and build a library in a relatively short period of time. We are completely debt-free and we own our land and building free and clear. Many organizations such as ours are in a building owned by a member, or leased from a strip mall, or some other such arrangement. They often find themselves "kicked out" of the building, left to start all over again. This cannot happen to us! We are here to stay!
