Locomotive 4070

1918 steam engine

Our goal is to bring the 4070 back to an operating condition.  It has been determined that this can be done but it will take time and money.  How much time will depend on how quickly monies can be obtained?  If the full amount required to do the restoration were available now, a fairly accurate time estimate is two years. 

The amount of money required comes to a sum of $1,290,000.00.  So you can see that we are faced with a major expense.  It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.  And that first step is what we are undertaking now.  So please help get this grand locomotive back on the rails with a generous donation at this time.

Midwest Railway Preservation Society is a 501(c)(3) Ohio Not-For-Profit Corporation so your donation is tax deductible.  All monies contributed to the fund will be used exclusively for 4070 restoration.
