The 2021 Railway Raffle offers a chance to experience a truly memorable ride day for family members of all ages and a special opportunity to operate a real diesel engine. Proceeds from the raffle fundraiser will support the rebuilding of Steam Engine #17, which is currently undergoing its mandated, 15-year Federal Railroad Administration inspection.

Raffle tickets cost $10 (or 6 for $50) and only 1,000 tickets will be sold. You can buy raffle tickets until 12 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 15. Total prize value approximately $250.

Members of the North Carolina Railway Museum and their families, and employees of our advertising agency, Communicopia, are not eligible to enter. Raffle purchasers must be 21 years of age.
