We have permission to move 7600 to Hartford Michigan, to the Western Michigan Railroad where she will be stored with off-lease locomotives from GLLX. We will also have space to begin restoration along with additional help from Henry who is highly motivated in wanting the get 7600 restored and operational!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the donation of former C&NW 7600! As one of only two rail cars ever built in its configuration of RPO, Baggage, Tavern, and Lunch Counter, 7600 is one of a kind! The current owner, Mr. Gerry Kopiasz has donated this car to us to ensure its ongoing preservation and restoration. It is our intention to preserve this unique car and restore it to operational condition. Our long term plans include returning it to service as part of a dinner train experience!
