Becoming a Benefactor Member of LARFH

If you're missing Rail in your life, then LARHF's Benefactor Membership is for you!

This is the perfect membership status for anyone who wants adventure, rail history and friends.


A Benefactor Membership can also be shared between family members, like a Parent and Child or Grandparent and Grandchild. A great way to bond and make ever-lasting memories. 

Benefactors of LARHF have access to every LARHF event, both public and private, for no additional cost as well as a free hardback copy of any LARFH publication. 

LARHF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

"My friend from the 3rd grade, Jim Roodhouse, was looking for a picture of the train that ran by his house, and somehow contacted Joe Lesser who thought that he had one. I went with Jim to LARHF in Alhambra and met Joe. It looked like an interesting organization, so I joined." 

Ellie is a second generation Angeleno who is passionately in love with her city and its history. She also loves public transportation in all forms, especially rail. It seemed like a natural fit for her to join LARHF- it is vital to keep the history and memories alive and to teach future generations about Southern California’s rich history.
