NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION

The first quarter New Member Orientation for 2020 will be held on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in the Reefer Conference Area at the locomotive restoration site.   The orientation will begin promptly at 09:00 and last most of the day.   If you have a pair of hard toed boots, please bring them with you.   The orientation consists of an overview of our organization given by President Mike Hartshorne followed by a two-to-three hour safety briefing (we will break for lunch).   After that there will be an in depth tour of the restoration site.

NMSL&RHS


Born in May 1944 the AT&SF 2926 ran a million miles in the American Southwest before being retired in an Albuquerque City park in 1953.   Rescued from that park in 2000 the giant steam locomotive is being restored to operation by the all volunteer crew of the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society.   You have to see it to believe it !   Come to the restoration site at 1833 8th Street NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102 any Wednesday or Saturday between 9 AM and 3 PM for a free hard hat tour.



Is The Tool Car Ready To Come Home And Be Finished ?






Our Tool Car, NMSX 3939 (formerly RPCX 3939), is still in Bellevue, Ohio and was just lifted into place on its rebuilt trucks.   Soon it will be ready for a move to Albuquerque.   We still a need funding in order to finish the inside with our new generator and our high-volume air compressor to assist with cold-starts when AT&SF 2926 hits the road.   Welding equipment, tools, spare parts, lubricants and other items will be carried along on excursions.   We will also paint the exterior to match its AT&SF appearance.   Please consider a generous donation and help us finally get this project across the finish line!
