The Folsom Railroad Museum is located in a vintage railroad passenger car located in Historic Folsom on the railroad block between two historic railroad depots, the Folsom Railroad Depot and the Ashland Freight Depot. Your donations help keep the volunteers, the Museum, the Folsom Handcar Derby, and Rail History alive for the community and visitors.
Volunteers for our annual Folsom Handcar Derby, www.HandcarDerby.com, are always appreciated. Most of those that volunteer for the Handcar Derby enjoy coming back each year for the event.
Handcar race training is provided with an emphasis on Safety First.
The Handcar Derby is held over one weekend each year, usually set for the first weekend in May. Currently, we plan to hold the 29th Annual Folsom Handcar Derby this year. The Handcar Derby is one of the longest running handcar races in the nation.
Volunteers are needed that can help at the Folsom Railroad Museum, weekends 11:00am to 4:00pm, to keep our local railroad history a part of their community and to pass along that history to younger rail enthusiasts. Training is supplied to those new to the regional rail history.
