In 1990 the Washington State Railroads Historical Society was formed,
and dedicated to preserving Washington State rail history.
The Society started with as few as ten members and
over the years it has groan to over a hundred.
The Society is a nonprofit C-3 organization and has a set of bylaws by which
it operates, a board of officers that are elected each year by the membership.
The board is made up by the President, Vice-President, Treasurer,
Secretary, Historian, Director at Large, and Past-President.
The society also elects a Safety-Officer each year to watch over work projects.
In 1998 the society opended it's first museum at 122 North Tacoma Ave,
in Pasco, Washington.
Work is under way to inlarge the museum and some day to move it across
the street into the old Pasco Depot.
