Welcome aboard to the unfolding story of Santa Fe 2926
ABOUT US:   Who we are and what we're trying to accomplish.



Born in May 1944 the AT&SF 2926 ran a million miles in the American Southwest before being retired in an Albuquerque City park in 1953.   Rescued from that park in 2000 the giant steam locomotive is being restored to operation by the all volunteer crew of the New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society.   You have to see it to believe it !   Come to the restoration site at 1833 8th Street NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102 any Wednesday or Saturday between 9AM and 3PM for a free hard hat tour, or better yet . . . .

Come To Our 2019 Annual Open House Saturday, September 28th, 9 AM - 5 PM !

FREE FOOD, ENTERTAINMENT and an UP-CLOSE-AND-PERSONAL visit with our Gal!

Mark your calendars and check out our flyer HERE !





Will You Help Us finish The Tool Car Project ?






Our Tool Car, NMSX 3939 (formerly RPCX 3939), is still in Bellevue, Ohio but will hopefully be ready to come home here to Albuquerque later this Fall.   Right now, refurbishment of the truck brakes, wheels, springs, etc. is being finished-up along with inspections and repairs for any cracks that were found on the under-carriage and truck frames.   We still a need a last bit of funding in order to finish refurbishing the inside with creature-comforts along with installing our new generator and our high-volume air compressor to assist with cold-starts when AT&SF 2926 hits the road.   We also plan to give it a nice, new exterior paint job.   We're soooooooo close to finishing the funding on this endeavor, so won't you please consider a generous donation and help us finally get across the finish line ?


HELP !



$29,882.77   Wow!   That is what it is going to cost the NMSL&RHS to get our spur and switches up to class 2 compliance so the heavy AT&SF 2926 can safely get out of our restoration site without going on the ground.   The track repairs will also let us get our tool car on to the site when it arrives later this year.   Herzog Transit Services Incorporated will professionally do the work under the authority of the New Mexico Department of Transportation.   Please donate now to help us pay that bill !
