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.

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.
