Join us as we celebrate Ellies Life!

WMSR has partnered with the For Ellie Foundation to help create a more beautiful world through random acts of kindness.  We are offering raffle tickets for a lucky passenger and 9 of their closest friends to experience a free ride in one of our heritage cabooses.  Raffle tickets are only $10 for 1 or $25 for 3.  All proceeds will be donated to the For Ellie Foundation.  Raffle will be held the first week of August.

To purchase raffle tickets, visit For Ellie Foundation or call 1800-TRAIN50 x112 (301-759-4400 x112).  Please visit for our caboose rental polices.

The For Ellie Foundation was started by two young parents in the wake of the unexpected loss of their 2.5 month old daughter, Ellie. During her eulogy, Ellie’s father, Matt, explained that he and her mother believed there were two ways to react to this tragedy: Option one was to dig a hole and hide in it, and option two was to dig a hole and build a garden for the world to see. “It took 24 hours for Ashleigh and I to realize we were Option 2 people,” Matt said. In the weeks following their loss, the garden that is the For Ellie Foundation has been established. Through your donations, the For Ellie Foundation is building both a literal garden for the community, and a figurative garden by making the world a more beautiful place through random acts of kindness.

Western Maryland Scenic Railroad is deeply grateful for all the support we have received throughout the years from local businesses and the community in general.  We realize that without this support, we would be as successful as we are today.  In an effort to show our gratitude, here is a list of many organizations we have supported over the years.
