The last quarter of 2018 was a quiet one for the Bring Back 757 effort, but 2019 is starting out strong.
To date we have raised over $157,000 of our $250,000 goal! Movement costs are financed and movement logics with the host railroads are being arranged at this time.
In January, our Nickel Plate Road caboose #783 was moved to Strasburg to serve as a rider and tool car for the move home. As soon as Norfolk Southern is ready to make the move, we will be ready, and we believe that to be very soon.
No movement date is scheduled, but we’re hopeful to have the 757 at our museum for opening day on May 4, 2019. From here forward, all contributions will be directed towards the restoration and display of this iconic locomotive.
With this update we’ve included some beautiful photos of caboose 783 on the Strasburg Railroad and at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania from Christopher Pollock, Enjoy!
