Railroad Museum of New England was awarded the 2005 H. Albert Webb Memorial Preservation Grant (see the Mass Bay RRE press release in the News Section of this site).
Work is expected to start in the second half of this year, and those of you out there who might be interested in getting up close and personal with a real 120-ton locomotive are invited to come to Thomaston and get involved. Distance issues? We have active volunteers from New Hampshire, Mass., New Jersey, New York, as well as Connecticut. You might find this stuff (bringing old locos back from the dead) as interesting and compelling as standing trackside and watching/photographing trains. Oh, and when it's done, cab rides are always available! Don't think that you have enough "experience" to get involved? Don't worry, we'll teach you.
Nells, when will we see you and your "significant other"?
