The Western Railway club was founded in 1898 as a non-profit professional organization for the railroad industry. Its mission then, as now, is to promote the railroad industry by providing a place for railroad industry employees, railroad/railway suppliers, and associated industries to meet and nurture their professional and personal relationships - as well as to keep members informed of issues that affect the railroad industry.
Our mission is to keep the camaraderie that the railroad industry has been historically known for alive and well, while being a source for up-to-the-minute industry information and trends.
Although the Club’s by-laws have been amended over the last 100+ years, we like to think that the Western Railway Club meetings, usually involving a delicious dinner, aren’t much different than those held at the turn of the century.
The Club is governed by a Board of Directors and, if you reviewed a roster of past Board and Club members, you would find the names of many well-known railroaders serving on our board.
