The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum has made substantial progress in raising funds to bring back Nickel Plate Road Berkshire 757. The Berkshire was originally set aside for a display site in Bellevue in the 1960s, but when the city couldn't raise the money for the site, the locomotive eventually relocated at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.

More details and donation link in this press release: https://bringback757.org/2017/11/2017-fundraising-goal/

"Since August, the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum has raised over $70,000 to BRING BACK 757 and now has a goal of raising $100,000 before the end of 2017.

“If we reach this milestone, we’ll be on track to ship 757 back to Bellevue earlier than anticipated in 2018,” explained Dwayne Fuhering, the project manager behind BRING BACK 757. “Our local community and the railroad community has been incredibly supportive, so we’re hoping their continued generosity will help us reach our year-end goal.”

All donations are tax-deductible and can be made online or by mail at Bring Back 757 233 York St. Bellevue, Ohio, 44811.
