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 1956.   Around 3:44 PM Saturday July 24th, 2021 - for the first time since the locomotive was taken out of service 65 years ago - 2926 moved under her own steam power again.   It was a red letter day for all the restoration crew, donors and fans who have supported the restoration effort these past 22 years since her purchase for $1 from the city in 1999.   Today, the NMSL&RHS Society places her value at over $3.5M.

Back by popular demand, we made another limited color run of "A LOVE AFFAIR WITH BIG BOY'S TOYS"!   The saga of the restoration of the AT&SF 2926 is a photo rich history of the work of the NMSL&RHS volunteers.   From moving her out of Coronado Park in June 2000 to the first few steam powered turns of the drivers the book is illustrated with hundreds of photographs.   A full color edition is available for $55 + S&H.   Orders can be made on-line below via PayPal (no need to be a PayPal member).  Get 'em while they're hot!
