Spring Work Session approaches...Superheater Fund Grows!

Thanks to the generous donations of Derek Miller, and Nicholas, Kelly, Alex and Eric Manos of Colfax, we are very close to a successful end to our Superheater Fundraiser! Only four left to sponsor. Click here to donate and have your name forever placed on the locomotive's donor plaque.

Thanks to everyone who has donated to date. A complete list of the donors will be posted soon.

The Spring work session at Portola is coming up April 20th through the 27th. A whole week this time so that we can accomplish more, getting us closer to our goal of returning steam to WP rails. I will attempt to update the Steam Blog regularly with progress updates. It looks to be a large crew for this time, so we should make great forward strides this month, and through the rest of the year. More details to follow.

Have a wonderful Spring season! - JCA
