Andrew Railroad Mu- seum and History Center accepted a valuable gift re- cently of rare Railway Ex- press Agency (REA), Wells Fargo and Great Northern Express railroad artifacts from James Andrew of Jefferson. Andrew, a long- time railroad collector, presented the items Wednesday, Aug, 21, to Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad General Manager Fenner Stevenson and James H.

Avid railroad collector Don Mahoney of Madison, WI and long-time friend of Andrew made the items available for purchase to Andrew and he, in turn, donated them to the mu- seuIn. "We're pleased to have these wonderful additions to the museum and are truly thankful to Jim for these very important addi- tions. They will really strengthen our museum collection.
