Due to overwhelming public response to our Railroad Museum, new members interested in modeling, history, building and operating model railroad layouts are needed. You will have the opportunity to help in the museum, greeting our visitors and helping them to enjoy their visit. The social activities we used to have in our railroad club have been put aside temporarily while we worked hard to get the museum up and running, but we are working on restoring some of them starting in the near future and eventually we will be having the field trips restored as well. Please check out our Upcoming Events page to see what has been scheduled. Also, check out the Past Events page to see how we have restarted our social events.
NOTE: The "Video Players" page has been changed to "Archives". The videos removed from the "Railroad
Museum" page are still on the new "Archives" page, under the Railroad Museum section (section one). Also the contents
of the "Past Events" have been moved to the "Archives" page and the Past Events page deleted. Some of the displays on the
Archives page may be in a smaller format than originally.
From now on all "older" videos and movies from the "Railroad Museum" page will be moved to the "Archives" page
and any events from the "Upcoming Events" page that have come and gone will be moved to the Past Events section (section
two) of the "Archives" page.
WHISTLE STOP RAILROAD CLUB
The Railroad Museum in Kingman, AZ is Operated by the Whistle Stop Railroad Club in cooperation with the
City of Kingman and is located in the east end of the Train Depot (Amtrak Railroad Station) on Route 66 (E. Andy Devine
Ave.) in downtown Kingman, AZ
The club members have built the Lionel O gauge and the HO gauge layouts from scratch beginning with the frame
work of those layouts before they moved into the depot and adding everything to the frames after getting into the depot on
2 July 2012. The N scale layout was already owned by the club was made larger before moving into the museum and remodeled from the original after moving into the depot.
Work on the 3 layouts reached a point where the trains were running even though there was still a lot of work
to be done but there was enough done so the club could open the museum to the public. Much more work has been and continues
to be done to all 3 layouts. When initially finished, we will have the grand opening. In the meantime, please visit the Railroad Museum page on this website as well as the Archives page, to see all the work done from the start to the present day with lots of snapshots, slideshows, and videos showing all the changes and additions. And of course, visit the museum itself whenever possible to see in real life all the work done and in progress.
