Welcome aboard to the unfolding story of Santa Fe 2926
ABOUT US:   Who we are and what we're trying to accomplish.

DID WE GET 2926 BACK ON TRACK ?

Hulcher Services saves the day !   (movie 6:51 - no sound).

On Monday, Hulcher Services crossed Broadway (coming from Belen) at 0900 (the highway wide-load curfew lifted at 0900).   They arrived shortly later with two lowboys with a Caterpillar tractor each, two flatbed tractor-trailers with the Cat's counter-weights & side-booms and a host of pick-up support vehicles.   After off-loading and assembling the Cat's, they set-up along side 2926 and began the move 25 feet west to safe track.   They were finished around 1:30 PM and made it out of Dodge before the highway curfew at 1500, as planned. Efficiency was only secondary to safety.

Thanks to all our members and fans who have given over $9,000 so far to help get us out of this predicament !

This was quite an expensive operation, far more than the $9K+ raised so far, so please continue to help if you can . . .

Stay tuned - we still need to repair, replace and fortify the track and H-beams over the pit.


WHAT ABOUT THE TOOL CAR PROJECT ?

The Tool Car Project is alive and well!   RPCX 3939 (now re-designated with our own "NMSX 3939" Road Number), is still in Bellevue, Ohio and almost ready to come to it's new home here in Albuquerque.   We've raised enough money to make it rail-worthy and get it shipped to New Mexico, but we still need more funding to finish refurbishing the inside with creature-comforts, a generator and our high-volume air compressor to assist with cold-starts when 2926 finally hits the road.   We also plan to give it a nice, new exterior paint job.

You can check out the mini photo album featuring the car HERE.
. . . and please don't forget to keep contributing to this worthy cause, too !

We're soooooo close . . .
