Museum Board Member Laila McEwen takes inventory of a collection of railroad items donated by Johnnie Walker of Terry, MS in memory of Sarah Boone who originally was from East McComb. As a young girl, Sarah lived next to roundhouse employee Ed Gatlin. Consequently, she became fascinated by the railroad, collecting everything she could that dealt with trains.

Ganeath Brewer works at labeling and sorting Johnnie Walker's massive train collection.

Jerry Malone and Butch Williams hang a large painting done by the late Charles Crossley and a children's art class. The painting was given to the museum by Fern Crossley.
