Just a quick announcement. It’s official, #18 will be returning to Laws Railroad Museum in March of 2023. More details will be forthcoming but for the moment the following dates are confirmed: March 23rd and 24th will be an exclusive photo event put on by Pete Lerro. Tickets for these dates are only available through his website Lerro Productions. Additionally, #18 will be operating for the general public on March 18th and 19th in addition to March 25th and 26th. Public operations event times and admission costs will be announced in the very near future.
Be sure to come out and join us as these will be the last public operations of #18 in 2023 and potentially well into 2024 as we take a little time off for it’s FRA mandated staybolt cap inspection and to focus our workforce on other projects, like our boxcar 1C featured in previous posts.
And last but not least, we are still happy to accept those last minute, end of the year, tax deductible donations to support the restoration of the boxcar. Donations can be made right here.
