Create a lasting legacy and support the construction of the C&NWHS archives by purchasing an engraved tile for our Wall of Memories.

This is an excellent opportunity to remember, memorialize and honor those who have had a significant impact in your life. Whether a C&NWHS member or supporter, railroad employee or spouse, relative or friend; what better way to honor those for years to come. A tile can also be purchased in your name, on your own behalf.

The engraved tiles will be installed on an interior wall in the public display area of our archives, which is to be built at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, IL. Each tile can be personalized with the name(s) of your choosing. The tile will have three lines that will allow 20 characters on each line (the 20 character count will include letters, spaces and punctuation). The donation amount for each tile is $100.00.

Tiles can be purchased through September 30, 2018 via this website by credit card or PayPal, or by printing this form and mailing with a check to:
