The Western Railway Museum, in Solano County, California, is built along the former mainline of the Sacramento Northern Railway. The collection focuses on trolleys, as it is primarily a museum of interurban transit equipment. It also has several Western Pacific Railroad pieces, including two steam locomotives. Equipment is in a wide range of conditions. Some is fully operational, and the museum runs a heritage railway with scheduled excursions for visitors. The museum is operated by the Bay Area Electric Railroad Association (BAERA), a non-profit organization. The BAERA also maintains a substantial archive of materials relating to street railway, interurban and rapid transit subjects, focusing on the Bay Area.
