See the ATSF 2926 as it is being restored by the New Mexico Steam Locomotive & Railroad Historical Society. The vintage steam locomotive is one of 30 engines in the 2900 class built between 1943-44 for the war effort. Used in freight, passenger, and troop train service, the engine traveled over one million miles before its last run in 1955. The restored locomotive ran on its own steam power for the first time in July 2021. Limited enrollment.
