This Year's Project: Train show and clubhouse expansion

About Our Organization

In 2001, eight men met in a basement who all had a passion for trains and model railroading and B.A.R.E was born! As a non-profit organization, the Beatrice Area Railroad Enthusiasts are committed to preserve local railroad history and is open to the public. We educate the public about the importance of railroads and their history in the building of this great nation. Whether you enjoy model railroading or just like to photograph trains and enjoy railroad memorabilia our mission is simple: promote and encourage people of all ages to enjoy the world of trains and one of the best hobbies around... model railroading!  We are proud to be part of beautiful downtown Beatrice, NE so stop on by and see us on historic 5th Street and bring the family and be sure to follow our progress on Facebook and our newly redesigned website! 



Current Project: Train show and clubhouse expansion

Every year since 2004, the Beatrice Area Railroad Enthusiasts has hosted an annual model train show in downtown beatrice for the public to enjoy and we need your help. As we strive to make the event bigger and better for the numerous people and their families who attend, we are in need of funds to secure more tables and chairs for vendors and also food and supplies for hungry patrons. As our downtown clubhouse also expands, we need more display cases and supplies to finish our layouts and train memorabilia room. Since we rely solely on donations, please consider donating to our non-profit organization so we may continue to grow and expand providing yearly events and educational material for our museum and for the public to enjoy. Thank you for your support!
