Oregon - Depot Park and DeWitt Museum
Prairie City, OR - The DeWitt Museum The Sumpter Valley Railway (SVRy) was chartered in 1890 in Baker City and completed in 1910. The SVRy Passenger Station, commonly known as the Prairie City Depot, was constructed in 1910. It is a two story building of balloon frames construction, cruciform in plan, measuring 60 x 32 feet. The building has shiplap siding, jerkin headed cross-axial gable roofs, and bracketed, wraparound canopies which shelter the ground level doors of the east and west wings which contained freight storage and a passenger waiting room respectively.

The Depot was nominated into the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and restored throught the efforts of Mrs. Babs Brainard and the Sumpter Valley Depot Restoration Committee. The museum moved into the building in 1983.

Pennsylvania - Newton Square Railroad Museum
Newtown Square, PA - The freight station is the last vestige of the Newtown Square branch of the P.R.R. freight and passenger line that once rumbled 9.2 miles through the township to Philadelphia.

To make room for the Winding Way by-pass road, the station was moved to its new home on the Drexel Lodge site on West Chester Pike. The Newtown Square Historical Preservation Society was pleased to have the opportunity to move and save this valuable piece of history. The Historical Society will start a complete restoration on May 11, 2000. They plan to use it as a railroad museum, preserving a piece of our history for future generations. In 2006 it was transferred to the Newtown Square Penn Railroad Museum Association.

Pennsylvania - Portage Station Museum
Portage, PA - The Portage Station Museum is located at the corner of Lee and Washington Streets. This station was built in 1926 and served until 1954 for the Pennsylvania Railroad. The first floor was the ticket office and waiting room and the second floor was for freight. Passengers would exit the building, walk under the concrete arch next to the museum, and climb up a stairway located in the middle of the arch. The stairs would put them at an outdoor waiting area located between the railroad tracks, allowing them to board westbound or eastbound trains. This is clearly depicted by the photograph at the top of the HO scale model of the Portage Railroad. The station currently houses the Portage Area Historical Society.

South Carolina - Lancaster and Chester Railroad Museum
Lancaster, SC - Once upon an occasion, a trip to the Springs Recreation Park would allow for a ride on the only miniature steam driven railway in the world. On any given weekend, the Lancaster and Chester crew could be found operating the Lilliputian Branch of the railroad. In those days, the branch consisted of three locomotives, four passenger cars, two flat cars, and a caboose. There was more than one mile of rail with a turntable, a round house, a station, two sidetracks, a water tank and a tunnel. Thousands of children visited the park annually to ride the train. A portion of this train is already on display at the L&C Museum with the remaining portion undergoing renovations.

The highlight of the museum is a scale model replica of the original 29-mile route of the L&C. The railroad enthusiasts have taken on the responsibility of making exact replicas of every building and facility on the route, plus shrubs, trees and bodies of water.
