Preservation Projects at a Glance

Urgent & High Priority Needs

Urgent and High priorities need to be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the site is safe for workers and visitors, and to prevent further deterioration and loss of original materials and parts.

Protective Enclosure

Constructing a shelter over the locomotive is the most effective preventive measure to ensure its long-term preservation from the elements.

Abrasive Blasting & Painting

This project involves refinishing CN 2747 by cleaning the exterior surface with an abrasive blast media to remove the current paint and accretions underneath before applying a new finish.  This is part of the Urgent and Hight Priority needs.
