Last year, our volunteers restored and repainted the oldest steam locomotive we have at the Museum. Over a dozen volunteers donated a total of 1134 hours to this project in 2019 alone! Donations to the Mainline General Fund allow our Foundation to plan, coordinate, schedule, hire and oversee not only our restoration projects, but also everyday tours and other Museum support projects. Your donations purchase paint, supplies, disposables and tools that allow our volunteers to do their work on the trains, but they also fund supplies that encourage our volunteers in their personal growth and development; allowing teenagers and Special needs individuals a place to hone interactive skills while receiving rewards for commitment and dedication above the satisfaction of getting a job done well. Your donations allow others to give back to their community in a positive and meaningful (and often downright fun!) way.
