We recently surveyed a group of our most dedicated members to determine their
reasons as to why they chose to become members.  Below are some of the results...


  1.  I love trains.
  2.  I appreciate and/or enjoy train restoration and preservation.
  3.  Riding trains is fun for the whole family and I want to know as soon as tickets go on sale!
  4.  Traveling on passenger trains is a great way to enjoy the scenery and the seasons.
  5.  It’s a true delight to see children’s response to trains.
  6.  I want to support the mission and efforts of the Friends of the Railroad.
  7.  It’s a great way to participate in local train history.
  8.  Riding passenger trains is a wonderful event for the community.
  9.  I like getting updates on local trains and train travel.
  10.  I want to be eligible to become a member of the board to help influence the vision and direction.

Newly Added: Starting in 2019, FORR Members (unless they opt-out) are automatically signed up to receive advance email notification of tickets going on sale, before the general public, for Santa Trains and other excursions with Friends of the Railroad.
