ABOUT US:   Who we are and what we're trying to accomplish.

WOULD THIS AMTRAK CHARTER TRAIN NOW BE DENIED ?

An Amtrak policy change dated March 28, 2018 would forbid special trains including steam lead passenger excursions we have planned as Amtrak extra trains between Albuquerque and Las Vegas, New Mexico.   Our State depends heavily on tourist income as would be derived from such operations.

The policy change is bad news for New Mexico’s Steam Locomotive, the AT&SF 2926, and the members, friends, and supporters of the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society (NMSL&RHS).   This all volunteer, nonprofit group is restoring an impressive icon of our New Mexico history – the 2926.   Our organization has put 20 years, $3 million and 170,000 volunteer hours into the restoration of this steam locomotive.   It will be ready to run under its own power this year.

You can help by signing the Revoke Ban on Charter Trains and Private Car Movements petition at change.org.   You do not have to pay a donation for that.   You can spend the time to write to or call your elected representatives at federal, state and local levels.   Reconsideration of the ban would be good for a lot of big beautiful locomotives and charter trains.


WE'RE OVER 80% THERE !   WILL YOU HELP NMSL&RHS FINISH THE TOOL CAR PROJECT ?





Generously donated by Curt Potter the RPCX 3939 baggage car is in Bellevue, Ohio. Currently the car is under the care of Mark Majors with the body on blocks with both trucks removed and being disassembled for inspection and any needed repairs. The NMSL&RHS hopes to have the car in Albuquerque in the summer of 2018 where additional work will be done to install our large air compressor, welding equipment, electrical wiring,and build storage spaces for tools, spare parts, and lubricants. The NMSL&RHS will acquire and install an electric generator. Repairs to the doors, painting and seating for the road crew will also be needed.

Check out the mini photo album featuring the car HERE.
