Two Pennsylvania organizations are seeking to preserve five Pennsylvania Railroad steam locomotives so that they can be placed on display.
All of the engines are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are:
- M1b 4-8-2 No. 6755, built at Juniata Shops in Altoona, Pennsylvania, in 1930,
- K4s 4-6-2 No. 3750, built at Juniata in 1920.
- L1s 2-8-2 No. 520, built by Baldwin in 1916.
- H10s 2-8-0 No. 7688 built by Lima in 1915.
- B6sb 0-6-0 No. 1670 built at Juniata in 1916.
The campaign is being spearheaded by the Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Railroad Technical & Historical Society.
The PRR historical society will match all donations up to $50,000.
