Friends, patrons, and members –

Complying with the Governor’s orders to limit the spread of Coronavirus and COVID-19, the North Carolina Railway Museum (NCRM) home of the New Hope Valley Railway remains closed to the public. We continue to monitor and adhere to the guidelines set forth by Government for our museum being open to the public and hosting events. At present, we plan to remain closed to the public through Aug 7, 2020, pending further announcements regarding restrictions or re-opening.

Here are the safety measures we will implement once our rail yard is open and train rides resume.

For additional, up-to-date information, please refer to this website and our Facebook page.

NCRM runs on a lot of things – most of which is fueled by our wonderful volunteers that are passionate about sharing and educating about the history and experience of Railroads and how they shaped North Carolina and the world. Our organization and individual volunteers continue planning and working toward how the museum can continue to preserve, operate, educate, and share the history and experiences we offer. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us complete a specific project in the future when our volunteers are able to resume work, or just to help pay the bills while we’re closed.
