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.
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.
