For the past two days a small team was in Strasburg, Pennsylvania working on the 757 and getting it ready for movement to Bellevue Ohio. Here’s a progress video from Rick Rowlands on the latest work being preformed. Thank you to all the donors for making this possible.
In the last 10 weeks since the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum began our campaign to Bring Back 757, we have had extraordinary results! We’ve been able to purchase needed supplies and begin movement preparations on the locomotive.
We have over 200 donors from all over the map that have contributed over $63,000!
Here’s where our donations have come from so far: Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Nevada, New York, Texas, Missouri, Georgia, Washington, D.C., United Kingdom.
This showing of support shows that many folks out there want to see the 757 brought home and preserved in the community as the Nickel Plate Road intended. The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum wishes to thank each and every one of our generous donors for allowing us to proceed with this project.
Donations are tax deductible and are primarily excepted 3 ways. We are capable of excepting donations online through the project website www.bringback757.org/donate , you can come to the museum during regular business hours and donate in person or by mail:
