The Toledo Lake Erie & Western Railway and Museum, Inc. is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, all volunteer organization. Serving Northwest Ohio since 1969. Visit the ‘Membership’ tab for details on how to help! We operate on 10.5 miles of track between Waterville and Grand Rapids, OH, and house many pieces of historical railroad equipment.


The Bluebird Passenger Train is currently not running. The Volunteers at the TLE&W Railway Museum are working hard to resume its operation in the near future. Your donation will help speed up the progress of its return to service.
