Railroad Links Directory: Top : Railway Preservation

Railway Preservation

These sites are devoted to the art and science of railway preservation. They cover the subject of preservation, rather than focusing on any specific operation or museum. Railway Preservation News is a good example of the type of sites you'll find here.

Please note that while most tourist railways and museums are engaged in railway preservation, they have a separate category and thus are not listed here. The sites listed here are devoted to railway preservation in general.

There are 11 links in this category

Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums (ATRRM)
The Association of Tourist Railroads and Railway Museums (ATRRM) was born from two venerable associations with a combined history of nearly 100 years. After several years analysing their many similarities and goals, the Tourist Railway Association and the Association of Railway Museums merged to form ATRRM in 2013.

The new organization is dedicated to (1) providing a flow of information that will support and strengthen its members, (2) advocating for good regulation and legislation that ensures safety and the future of railway preservation, and (3) offering a variety of opportunities for members to share information and expertise. Whether reading our magazine, attending the Annual Conference, visiting the web site for updated information on legislation and regulation, participating in the Parts Forum, or forwarding the monthly e-newsletter on to volunteers and staff, ATRRM is the gathering spot for members.

Chapel Cars of America
Chapel Cars of America, thirteen churches-on-rails that followed the railroads west from 1890 to the 1940s and brought the gospel and the sacraments to the people living along the tracks. This is a story of America's history, a story of the railroads, a story of amazing grace and faith. There were three Episcopal cars: The Cathedral Car of North Dakota, and the two chapel cars of Upper Michigan; seven American Baptist Publication Society cars: Evangel, Emmanuel, Glad Tidings, Good Will, Messenger of Peace, Herald of Hope, and Grace; and three Catholic Extension Society cars: St. Anthony, St. Peter, and St. Paul.

International Working Steam Locomotives
International Working Steam Locomotives. It's less than 1/10 second to midnight for Real Steam all over the world. I believe the following is the short list of countries where there is traditional revenue earning steam and, in most cases, the amount is tiny, usually industrial and may be even seasonal. I don't believe that the numbers run to double figures anywhere except China and Indonesia.

Surviving Steam Photo Archive
The purpose of this site is to show current photographs of surviving steam locomotives around the country. While any steam locomotive can be included here, as the URL suggests the emphasis is on "park engines", those engines displayed outdoors in city parks, in widely varying states of repair. I'd also like to focus on engines that exist outside of preservation, in storage or in some cases even in scrapyards!

The Lost Engines of Roanoke
The Lost Engines of Roanoke website was launched in 1997 as a call to action to save four little-known survivors of the steam era. Hidden among the creepers at the Virginia Scrap Iron and Metal Co. yard on South Jefferson Street in Roanoke, Virginia, were four steam engines that time forgot. Norfolk & Western locomotives 917, 1118, 1134, and 1151 had been sold for scrap in 1950, at which time the N&W was still building new steam locomotives and had yet to order a single diesel. For nearly sixty years they awaited their fate, later accompanied by vintage Baldwin diesels Chesapeake Western 662 and 663 among other rolling stock.

Today, these "lost engines" are lost no more, with all of the locomotives and rolling stock from the Roanoke scrapyard having found new homes in preservation. Although they are saved from scrap, the process of transforming them from rusting scrapyard hulks into lovingly restored museum pieces is ongoing. This website will continue to support these restoration efforts, and to tell the remarkable story of the "Lost Engines" of Roanoke, along with other similar tales of scrapyard survival from around the country.
