Donate to Fire Up 2100
Like all steam locomotives, Reading No. 2100 requires annual repair and maintenance before it can operate again. Though rebuilt in recent memory, the locomotive has been inactive since 2008 and the American Steam Railroad has elected to perform an extensive mechanical inspection before 2100 will run again.
Nearly $300,000 has been invested to move Reading No. 2100 from Washington to Cleveland, Ohio and we’re raising $244,000.00 which will complete repairs to the firebox and provide some additional money for replumbing the backhead, new jacketing and lagging and paint job.
