This is your opportunity to see and ride some of the less frequently run equipment at IRM as we honor the volunteers who make the museum work. There will be great photo opportunities too!

Attractions planned during Showcase Weekend include operation of the Nebraska Zephyr, the museum’s famous 1930s streamliner; historic electric cars; operation of both of the museum's steam engines, Frisco 1630 and Shay 5; and trolley buses on Saturday. Memberships good through 2021 will go on sale on the 19th.
