This year, 2024 marks our 20th year in Phillipsburg. It's hard to believe we have been here for 20 years. So much has been accomplished and we are really only getting started. We have moved on from the tent we had as a shop to a nice steel building where we can work on more than one project at a time. We are in the process of building a new Station at Riegelsville. The exterior is done and we will now work on the interior.
We are getting ready for our Easter Trains, the first trains of the 2024 season with the regular Season starting May 4th this year.
We are putting the 142 back together. A lot has been done to it and a lot more needs to get done. Our goal is to have the 142 out in the late spring/early summer. We are working on the 1705, our new Snack Car in preparation of moving the everything out of the M1 into the 1705.
For our Members, we will be concentrating our efforts in the Shop on our fleet and the 142 so we need you to come on out help. We need help working on repairs, car cleaning and touch up, working on the seats and other areas. There will be a lot going on and your help is needed to make it happen.
For those who are not already Members and want to get involved, we ask you to join our society by clicking "JOIN" and follow the instructions, and thank you, in advance, for your help!
