Midwest Railway Preservation Society

Welcome to the Midwest Railway Preservation Society's website!

Our mission here at MRPS is to collect, preserve, educate, and operate railroading history. We offer our knowledge, experience, and expertise to private railcar owners a service they can depend on for their repairs, renovations, and service inspections. We service diesel locomotives, vintage steam locomotives, and railcars. We have many projects going on - from remodeling the roundhouse to working on our  steam locomotive – 4070. Yes! That’s right! We are working on a steam locomotive.  I hope that this site will excite you to come down and join us in our work to preserve Cleveland’s vital history.  No matter what your background, there is something here for everyone to do.  Also, after you are a member, you can pick up new skills. Learn more about how you can become a member of the Midwest Railway Preservation Society.  We want to excite the mind and educate the public, young and old.  We want to become a destination for Clevelanders and tourists as one of Cleveland's and Ohio's notable railroad history, preservation, restoration and education organizations.
