Happy New Year

Progress on E-7

2011 is now in the past, as 2012 is upon us.  I would like to take the time to thank everyone who came out and supported the Niagara Railway Museum Inc. in 2011, and of course our dedicated members who do their best to keep the Museum going, despite not being open to the public.  2012 is going to be a big year for the NRM.  More details on this years plans will be forthcoming over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned to find out more.  Some work has been progressing this weekend, mostly on the cosmetic restoration of HEPC E-7.

HEPC 0-4-0st #46 is covered for the winter as she sits right beside the missing windows.

The Plymouth is also covered, for the same reason, but also because the cab windows were broken and removed in 2010.  Aside from the restoration of HEPC E-7, the other main project for the year is the restoration to operation of our Plymouth diesel.  The motor starts and runs great, but we are in need of replacing some of the missing parts.  The electrical wiring is all needing to be updated as well, and some of the smaller airlines going through the cab floor have rotted away.  These are fairly simple to fix, but some other issues will have to wait until warmer weather.  The compressor is being rebuilt, and will be reinstalled and hooked up as soon as it is ready.

As always, if you would like to donate to any of our projects, it would be greatly appreciated. The Niagara Railway Museum Inc. is a registered Charitable organization, and can issue a Charitable Tax Receipt for any financial contributions.
