Just came across this website, this group is doing a cosmetic
restoration on Lackawanna engine 565 and is looking for
volunteers to help clean, paint, sandblast, reassemble, etc.
I'll post the link below.

If you have any retired people hanging around or slack jawed
teenagers who need to build character, this seems like a worthy
cause. These are the kinds of projects that deserve community
support, so if you know of anyone who may be interested, please
pass the word along.

Lackawanna 565 Restoration Project - Welcome

I wish I lived nearby.........The boys adored their trip to Steamtown. They loved it there.......
They loved learning the history of the steamtrains, and loved riding the steam train. It made for a wonderful, memoriable day.

We were supposed to do the steamtown thing a few weeks back, reserved it and all, but my son had the flu so we couldnt go ; no refunds either.

Oh well, hopefully sometime soon again
