Please help us with our progress on Reading 2100’s firebox by sponsoring the forging and machining of staybolts. Through your donation, you can be the one that helps form the head and machine these pieces of critical hardware for the locomotive.
You can still own a piece of the 2100 by buying one of her old staybolts, which would make an ideal display piece in your home, paperweight on your desk, or even a unique flat carload for your model railroad!
560 total staybolts are needed to help button up the firebox, so the engine can once again breathe fire and come closer to running on the high iron.
You can find out more about how staybolts are made in our February 2020 video update:
