The NMSL&RHS is a Non-Profit
corporation, as defined by Section
501(c) (3) of the U.S. Tax Code.

Donations are tax-deductible.
This is the official web site of the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society.

Our mission is to fully restore the Baldwin 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive, AT&SF No. 2926, to operational status. After over a decade of effort by an eclectic and dedicated volunteer staff of Doctors, Scientists, Engineers, Skilled Tradesmen and others, the Tender is finished. And now, the Board of Directors has announced the goal of finishing the Locomotive by the fall of 2015 in preparation for a year of running trials. We are more confident than ever that the thunder of 2926 and the wail of her whistle will be heard soon again as she makes her way from town-to-town.

This is the unfolding story of 2926. Welcome aboard.

Attention!

There will be a New Member Safety Orientation class held beginning at 9:00 AM Saturday November 22nd, 2014 in the Reefer Car conference area on-site.

Please note that this will likely be the last New Member orientation for 2014 and there may not be another class scheduled until late February 2015.


2926 Gets TRAINS 2014 Preservation Award!

At the Saturday, Nov. 8 annual meeting of the Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums in Tyler, Texas the TRAINS magazine 2014 Preservation Award was announced. This year's award goes to the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society. The $10,000 award will be applied to the expense of building a 26L brake system for the AT&SF 2926 steam lcomotive under restoration by the Society.

The Society has also received money to support this expensive effort from members and the Tom E. Dailey Foundation ($7,500 earlier this year). Further funds needed to revamp the entire brake system are being sought with a goal of having this critical system complete by the end of 2015.

The Society is proud to be recognized by TRAINS. We will squeeze these dollars really hard to get the most bang for the buck just like we always do. Our thanks go to Editor Jim Wrinn and the great guys and gals from TRAINS who have joined the thousands of good folks and hundreds of large and small companies backing the return of 2926 to service.

President, NMSL&RHS
