The Indiana Railway Museum (d.b.a French Lick Scenic Railway) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit. The Museum strives to further the cause of railroading history by restoring, maintaining, and operating historic equipment allowing guests to experience rail transportation from years gone by.

Donations made via this website are used for the restoration of equipment. The current restoration project is a 1940’s era New York Central combination car. “Combines” were used on branchline routes that enabled the railroad to transport passenger, small amounts of freight and baggage, and mail using the single car. The “combine” will be receiving extensive metal repairs, window replacements, restroom modernization, and HVAC work.

Donations made will be used to further this project. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Make your donation today and help restore this wonderful example of railroading history.
