The 5057 is about to start its trip north! Union Pacific has cleared it for movement and we expect them to pick it up in Portola, CA soon. It will soon be returning to Washington for the first time in nearly 35 years! It left Washington in one of the last Milwaukee Road trains out of the state.
The 5057 will be heading to the Pend Oreille Valley Railroad shop in Usk, WA where we will begin the restoration phase of the 5057 Project. Funding is still needed for the restoration, so please donate if you can. Follow the 5057 blog to get the latest news on the move and visit our 5057 web site to learn more about the project.
