About The Railroaders Memorial Museum
The Railroaders Memorial Museum is dedicated to revealing, interpreting, commemorating and celebrating the significant contributions of Railroaders and their families to American life and industry.
The Altoona Pennsylvania Railroad’s contribution to the nation’s transportation infrastructure, and to production standardization, marks it as one of the most important contributors to America’s industrial revolution.
By the 1920s, the Altoona railroad works employed 15,000 workers, and by 1945 the Pennsylvania Railroad’s facilities at Altoona had become the world’s largest rail shop complex.
