The Society is proud to announce a new benefit to existing members of the RGM&HS. Recently the RGM&HS as a 501(c)3 became an institutional member of The Feather River Rail Society. Your RGMHS membership now gets you free admission and a gift shop discount at the WPRM museum. In Portola, California.
Portola is located about an hour northwest from Reno, Nevada The museum is a working railroad located on the grounds of the former shop and rail yard of the Western Pacific. There is a large collection of historic locomotives and rolling stock of the WP and other railroads, many of which are operable. Located about an hour west of Portola is the famous Keddie Wye located at the top of the Feather River Canyon. If you are not familiar with the Western Pacific or the Portola Museum, check out their website at: wplives.org for more information. You will need to show your RGMHS membership card at the museum to access your discounts. If you do not have a membership card you can contact our Membership office (firstname.lastname@example.org), and they will send you a card via email that can be printed and used at the WPRM.
We hope you are able to take advantage of this new benefit. It's well worth the trip!
