The Revelstoke Railway Museum is trying to raise money to build an elevator that will make the museum’s mezzanine accessible to the elderly and those with disabilities. The mezzanine houses the museum’s detailed model train exhibit.

A GoFundMe campaign was started by Executive Director Laura Young on Feb. 22.

The museum has secured funding from Columbia Basin Trust, the Revelstoke Credit Union, and the Canada 150 Project, that will contribute to the project.
