Our new exhibit, Mayhem on the Interurban, is now open to the public!
When Plano’s Interurban Railway Museum opened the Motormen became a central part of our museum experience. Volunteer docents dressed as Motormen and guided visitors through the restored Car 360 and the former Plano Station. We found that both kids and adults alike responded positively to our Motormen, and even loved taking photos with them!
We now offer this free, educational outreach program created to bring our Motormen to you! We will travel to schools, daycares, senior centers, and libraries in Plano and the surrounding cities to share our expertise and knowledge at fairs, history days, and other special events. We bring a small selection of artifacts from the museum's teaching collection for hands-on learning experiences, as well as souvenir train tickets for each attendee.
This program is currently in the trial run phase in which we are still refining our teaching methods and traveling teaching collection. We are offering this program for free for a limited time, only to those within 20 mile radius of our zip code, 75074.
The times and days we offer this program are highly dependent on our volunteer Motormen's availability.
