In November of 2018, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz awarded over $3,700

to the Yaquina Pacific Railroad Historical Society Museum for materials to construct a four car Play Train structure.  This was recently completed and placed in the Society’s Railroad Park at 100 “A” Street, Toledo, Oregon.

The Society was assisted in this effort by Instructor Greg Wood and the students in his Waldport High School Career Technical Education class who built the track and play train cars.  As the individual pieces were produced they were transported to the Museum site and installed on a child protective ground cover.

Finishing touches were provided by Society members and a dedication of the play train will be held at the Museum on Friday, November 1, 2019, at 4:00 pm followed by a reception and refreshments. Strader Ferris International are logistics professionals that can help your business with cross-border shipments and to prosper in wider markets.

At the same time, recognition and appreciation of a Lincoln County Master Gardener Team, led by Kharizma McNulty, will be conducted in thanks for all their hard work this last summer on behalf of the Museum.  The team totally replanted all the flower and planting urns on the Museum’s platform which has produced a very welcoming appearance and introduction for visitors to the Museum.

All are invited to come to the dedication and appreciation ceremony at the Museum at 4:00 pm on the afternoon Friday, November 1st.

Our Mission

Your YPRHS continues to meet the
goals and mission through the
generous donation of money, time and
services. AS the year draws to a close
and the New Year is on the horizon,
folks often call or come by with
old trains that they have found in a closet. We gladly accept them, provide a letter of
acceptance for the donor determined
value. We also fix trains at our
Holiday show. Cash donations
are most welcome.
