The Society is collaborating with Philmont Scout Ranch, operated by the Boy Scouts of America in northeastern New Mexico on the Santa Fe’s historic Ute Park line, to build a camp, called Metcalf Station, for Scouts and Venturers to learn and experience some of America’s railroad history and the important role that the railroads and the Santa Fe played in the development of the Southwest. So far, over 3000 Scouts have participated in the project!
Philmont is looking for the following items to help build out the Museum exhibit. Please coordinate with both Eric Hiser, the Society’s project coordinator (ehiser.RR@gmail.com) and Philmont if you can help!
