Excursions to Raise Money for Restoration

The American Steam Railroad Preservation Association has announced plans to operate two special passenger excursions to raise money for the restoration of Reading T-1 4-8-4 No. 2100.

Both trips will feature private cars attached to scheduled Amtrak trains. The excursions are being coordinated by Luxury Rail Travel of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

One trip will operate July 27-30 on the Adirondack between New York and Montreal.

The second trip will operate in November on the Pennsylvanian between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The private cars expected to be used include a 1952 Budd observation-lounge, Alexander Hamilton, a former Pennsylvania Railroad car; and Passaic River, a 1948 Budd-built buffet-once owned by the Santa Fe. Both cars are now owned by the Morristown & Erie Railroad.

    I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned in a post that American Steam Railroad Preservation Association is facing eviction from the B&O Roundhouse in Cleveland. Surely no matter the outcome this will effect their operations. Court info can be found at – https://eservices.cmcoh.org/eservices/home.page.7 Case number – 2017 CVG 003164
