Railroad Links Directory: Top : Railway Preservation

Railway Preservation

These sites are devoted to the art and science of railway preservation. They cover the subject of preservation, rather than focusing on any specific operation or museum. Railway Preservation News is a good example of the type of sites you'll find here.

Note that while most tourist railways and museums are engaged in railway preservation, they have a seperate category and thus are not listed here.

Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums (ATRRM)
The Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums (ATRRM) was born from two venerable associations with a combined history of nearly 100 years. After several years analysing their many similarities and goals, the Tourist Railway Association and the Association of Railway Museums merged to form ATRRM in 2013.

The new organization is dedicated to (1) providing a flow of information that will support and strengthen its members, (2) advocating for good regulation and legislation that ensures safety and the future of railway preservation, and (3) offering a variety of opportunities for members to share information and expertise. Whether reading our magazine, attending the Annual Conference, visiting the web site for updated information on legislation and regulation, participating in the Parts Forum, or forwarding the monthly e-newsletter on to volunteers and staff, ATRRM is the gathering spot for members.

Chapel Cars of America
Chapel Cars of America, thirteen churches-on-rails that followed the railroads west from 1890 to the 1940s and brought the gospel and the sacraments to the people living along the tracks. This is a story of America's history, a story of the railroads, a story of amazing grace and faith. There were three Episcopal cars: The Cathedral Car of North Dakota, and the two chapel cars of Upper Michigan; seven American Baptist Publication Society cars: Evangel, Emmanuel, Glad Tidings, Good Will, Messenger of Peace, Herald of Hope, and Grace; and three Catholic Extension Society cars: St. Anthony, St. Peter, and St. Paul.

Locomotoras preservadas en España (Preserved steam locomotives in Spain)
Although RENFE officially extinguished its last locomotive in 1975 and industrial ones ended in the Eighties, the steam spirit even follows alive. More than 350 surviving units, several even in museums or in working order for historical trains, therefore they demonstrate it. The investigation and diffusion of this important historical heritage had to serve to conserve it as without a doubt it deserves.

Mack Locomotive Restoration
Locomotives #3 & #4 on March 01,1924 were originally built by GE as trolley freight motors for the Southwest Missouri Railroad Company at a cost of $30,900.00. The Mack Truck Company in 1939 purchased #3 & #4 and loaded them onto railroad flat cars in Joplin, MO for delivery to the Allentown, PA plant. The two locomotives were rebuilt into experimental gas electric locomotives with Mack EP gasoline engines, and two 300 volt GE 1503 generators that were wired in series “in theory” to provide 600 volts to the traction motors. However the result was that this design method proved to not be very a efficient electrical system and at times tended to be problematic. The two locomotives were used as plant switchers at the Mack truck factory until 1960. The Mack Truck Company produced a total of 23 locomotives between 1905 to 1939 with only five small 4 wheel units remaining today, and Mack locomotive #4 is the only 8 wheel unit still in existence. The #3 & #4 were also the last locomotives ever to be built or rebuilt by Mack Trucks, Inc. The company between 1951 and 1954 produced another 10 diesel powered self-propelled passenger railcars. Then in 1956 the last two units sold were repurchased back by Mack and rebuilt to another customers specifications. The two units were resold in 1958 and 1959, and the Mack Truck Company completely exited out of the railway business in 1960. In early 2008 it had been rumored that if new guardians could not be found for the #3 & #4 locomotives, that they both would see the scrappers torch due to the high increase dollar value of scrap iron. However there uncertain fate changed because a relationship had developed between the current owner of the two Mack locomotives and the McHugh family resulting in a positive future for one locomotive #4. The McHugh family’s nostalgia for old Mack #4 along with it being a part of Pennsylvania’s industrial railroading heritage is why they wanted to see it persevered.
