Wow. Just wow... Maybe those interested in the 213 should drive out there or write a letter?....
Then again, it was just over a week ago that VPOTUS claimed rural people couldn't make photocopies, so I guess there really are people who think we still rely on 1900's technologies like telegrams and outhouse in "that part of the world" too?.....
If anything, rural communities and small businesses are more likely to be connected because of the distances involved between suppliers.
I'll photocopy the internet for you to show their email.... since we aren't advanced enough to copy and paste:

We have reached out to Heath Haden on a number of occasions in the past few months. He is one of the people who has stated the owner does not wish to be contacted regarding the locomotive.
We have contacted other businesses owned by that individual with the same results. If you continue to do research and find other contacts, please let us know anyway. Just because we've tried this one doesn't necessarily mean we've tried them all, and you may find one that we have not.
As a general note, many of us would like to see the locomotive saved. All efforts are being made to do so, but reality in the end dictates what can and can't be saved. Our organization, along with many individuals, have made as much effort as we could have to save 213. We care, but the owner is unwilling to speak to us or anyone making offers on the locomotive at this time. That is something that cannot be solved at this time. However, unless 213 is scrapped, efforts will continue to be made to save it.
