Lodi train museum

On the September 8, 2013, edition of Cleveland Connection, host Katherine Boyd talks with Mike Trout, Chairman and Editor of the Lodi Railroad Museum.

The Lodi Railroad Museum is a non-profit 501C3 organization that was formed in 2005.  In 2007, the organization acquired the Lodi depot which was built in 1882. The Lodi depot was just recently placed on the National Register of Historical places, and we are looking into applying for grant monies to restore the depot to its original, historical state.

The Lodi Railroad Museum has been funded primarily by memberships, donations, activities and events – to help with the operational expenses.  We are also associated with Operation Lifesaver, an organization devoted to ending collisions, deaths and injuries at railroad crossings and around railroad tracks.  Once the depot is restored, we intend to use it for continual awareness and training about railroad safety, and for historical, educational purposes.
