4266 and 4268 on the cover of Heritage Rail Alliance Magazine

 This picture of 4266 and 4268 is on the cover of the July 2022 issue of Heritage Rail Journal. The photo was taken by Alan Small, and Richmond Bates provided this update.


Thanks to the Fort Wayne Historical Society for F7 Parts

 

Special thanks to the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, for their donation of a F7 start station and some relays we needed to keep 4268 and 4266 operational. The start station has allowed us to reconnect the factory air operated fuel gauges as well as correct an issue with our isolation switch on 4268. When multiple groups work together we can all help each other preserve history for years to come! Check out the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society Facebook page to see some of their accomplishments and latest projects!
