    New England Steam

    I am trying to get the word out on a group of people that are working to restore a steam locomotive. Over the last 2 years the group so far has saved the locomotive from a scrapping torch. They have removed the last of the asbestos from the locomotive. Dismantled many parts to make the locomotive be able to relocate from Waterville Maine. To its new home at the Downeast Scenic Railroad in Washington Junction (near Ellsworth Maine).

    Today was the first time since the tender of the locomotive was rolled on rails since 1953.

    The New England Steam Corp is a 503 (c) not for profit entity. We would appreciate your help. You may find more info at their website (link below)
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.

    Thank goodness for enthusiasts, otherwise it would all be lost to the scrappy.
