"Save the Depot" campaign hopes to keep doors open at Historic Railpark and Train Museum

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Historic Railpark and Train Museum in Bowling Green has created lasting memories for locals and tourists over the years but right now, its future is uncertain.

To help keep the doors open, a "Save the Depot" campaign launched in January.

"The whole purpose the the Save the Depot campaign is to truly keep the building here and to keep it operational. If we're not successful in this campaign, in the next two years the Historic Railpark and Train Museum could go away and this depot would not be open to the public," said Executive Director Jamie Johnson.

To help save the depot, those at the museum have created a series of 12 posters to highlight various initiatives of the campaign. Each month, a new poster will be unveiled.

"Really what we're doing is using this as an opportunity to highlight what's important about this place because there's so many things going on in this community that you can get lost in the shuffle really quick and so we're hoping that the posters will keep us at the forefront," said Johnson.

On Wednesday, WBKO's General Manger Brad Odil and WNKY's General Manger Julie Milam came together to unveil February's poster, which focuses on events at the railpark.

Community members and businesses can buy posters at the museum, or online at this link.
