Greetings from Ray Tutaj Jr.
On remnants of Milw trestle south of Mendota 1999

Welcome to the Mendota Rail Museum "unofficial" website.  I want to share with you the Mendota experience of yesterday and today. I grew up here and remember the last great chapter in Mendota's railroad history.  There are so many pictures to share and so much to tell. I will try my best to keep adding more.
   What is here on the website is a tiny fraction of all the photos and displays we have at the Railroad Museum. So please come visit when you can.
