Dedicated to protecting and sharing California’s railway heritage, the California State Railroad Museum Foundation works to bring railway history to life.
As the driving force behind North America’s finest railroad destinations, we are constantly striving to preserve our shared history, inspire future generations, and educate the global community about the past, present, and future of railroad technology and innovation.
The California State Railroad Museum Foundation (CSRMF) is an official cooperating association with California State Parks and a 501 (3) c organization. CSRMF provides funding for ongoing support of numerous programs at the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park in Jamestown.
The mission of the CSRMF is to generate revenue and awareness on behalf of its destinations, while supporting the preservation, interpretation and promotion of our railroad heritage.
OnTrack, the official magazine of the California State Railroad Museum and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, is published by the California State Railroad Museum Foundation. Distributed free of charge to Museum and Park members, OnTrack’s purpose is to provide updates about programs and initiatives of the Museum and Railtown 1897 and to highlight fundraising activities of the Foundation.
