The Newbern Depot Museum is in the process of trying to upgrade its most popular trains, and that is the large Lionel layouts as you first come in. We are in the process of attempting to acquire Illinois Central locomotives, like the one pictured, as well as additional layout buildings. Lionel's are expensive, and we would like the community's help in funding this. If you would like to provide funding for these trains, please contact Lynn Willis at 731-676-1870. Any amount will help.
The Newbern Depot Museum is also looking for workers for this year's annual Depot Days event, coming up on Saturday, Sept. 19th.
Please contact Mr. Willis if you want to work in this, or contact him for the next time a Depot Days committee meeting will be held. Workers in all fields, from anytime day, and into the evening, can be used. Some of this work can be applied toward high school student civic credit hours. Please contact Mr. Willis for further details, or questions.
