CONTRIBUTE TO HELP RESTORE THE E8's FUND
In 2007, the Medina Railroad Museum acquired a pair of 1953 vintage E8 Passenger Locomotives in their original New York Central Lightning Stripe paint scheme! #4080 and #4068 are presently being stored in Medina, NY near the museum. When shop time can be leased, a small group of volunteers is diligently working toward bringing both units up to FRA requirements for service on the museum's excursions between Medina and Lockport. As a display of historic preservation “in motion”, it is our intent to operate and maintain the units with all original components. Since both locomotives have been out of service for several years, many parts of their vital systems are in need of repair or rebuild. We will thoroughly and methodically continue with the upgrade program to initiate the next critical phase of inspections and test runs to get all the bugs out. More funding is needed to get these locomotives readied for revenue service. Your donation to the Museum’s “I HELPED TO RESTORE THE E8s" fund will help us toward completing the necessary repairs for full operation and also underpin a solid program to run them for the public as often as possible. The Medina Railroad Museum is a tax-exempt organization under IRS 501(c)(3) and donations are tax-deductible in the United States. Donations can be accepted via mail. Come and see them!! Just call the Museum to make arrangements. It is our hope that operation of this equipment will help the Museum in achieving higher recognition as a historic resource and tourist destination.
