New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, Albuquerque
(5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
In the mid 1990s a group of train enthusiasts formed NMS&LRHS for the express purpose of restoring Santa Fe 2926 to full running condition. At about 10:30 in the morning on June 23, 2000, the giant drive wheels rolled for the first time in forty years, as the 2926 was towed out of the park in Albuquerque, NM. This began a two-year pirouette, as the Society moved her about twelve blocks to their newly established "World Headquarters", as the restoration site is called, at 8th and Haines Streets. At the World Headquarters, a group of dedicated volunteers is performing the challenging tasks associated with putting the 2926 back in full running order.
