The Tom E. Dailey Foundation awards the

New Mexico Steam Locomotive & Railway Historical Society $ 7,500

The group is restoring Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 4-8-4 steam locomotive No. 2926 to running condition—an Albuquerque landmark of historical value. The project began in 2000 and is expected to be completed by 2016. The locomotive will be used to provide not-for-profit excursions in New Mexico in celebration of railroad heritage. The grant is for a portion of the cost of fabricating a modernized version of a brake stand subsystem to meet FRA certification.
