An Untold Story
Save the date for our new exhibit- Vital to Victory: How Motorwomen Challenged & Changed the World
Vital to Victory features the often-untold lives of women in the rail industry, from early electric streetcar drivers to modern locomotive engineers. Women were initially only granted entry to these jobs during World War I and World War II when male employees were drafted into service.
In addition to educational panels, there is also a display case that features tools from our collection that a motorwoman would have used daily.
This exhibit will be on display August 15th though November 21st.
