Our Railway Express Building

The Monterey and Salinas Valley Railroad Museum has entered into an agreement with the City of Salinas to occupy the Railway Express Agency  building. We will, with the help of the City, restore the  building to its 1940's appearance. This "sweat equity" project will qualify us for a long term commitment from the City of Salinas.
