Walk Through Diorama of Passenger Rail History

204 East Moore Street, P.O. Box 175, La Plata, Missouri 63549, 660-616-4676

In the heart of APRHF Silver Rails Country!

Central to the future plans of the APRHF is to build a walk-through diorama of passenger rail history.

All around the walls of the main central room of the future railroad museum will be displayed in time sequence the development of passenger rail in America from its origins to the present day. A visitor will be able to start from the entrance and walk along the walls of this main room going through displays that show photographs, historical documents, and other artifacts that demonstrate the evolution of passenger rail in America decade by decade.

Currently the APRHF only has a minimal amount of these historical photographs, documents and other artifacts. Donations and volunteer efforts will be needed to acquire an adequate representation of these items so that the APRHF can open its first iteration of the ongiong evolution of this display.

The APRHF is exploring the possible donation of a building near the La Plata Amtrak Station that could be used to house this museum devoted to the history of passenger rail in America. If there are delays in establishing a new museum by the railroad tracks, then the APRHF will probably convert the building that it already owns, the APRHF Silver Rails Event Center, to be the initial home of this Walk Through Diorama of American Passenger Rail History. The event center is over 8,000 square feet. The building could easily accommodate such displays along the interior walls while preserving enough open space in the central area of the building to continue to be used for events. Again, the timing of opening such a display will depend a lot on the donation of items and funds and the time and effort of volunteers.
