Toledo, Peoria and Western 800
The Illinois Railway Museum is soliciting donations for the TP&W 800, an Alco C424. Donors of more than $800 will receive time at the throttle of the 800, hauling a train on the Museum's demonstration railroad at speed as well as lower-level items. Donors of $424 or more will receive a commemorative T-shirt, the mug/glass AND a custom-made replica “800” number board, as she wore while on the TP&W. See the Projects page for more information on gifts and donation levels. Donations will be used to purchase the unit from the Morristown and Erie Railroad, pay for transportation, and pay for track space. Our goal is to raise $23,000 to cover indoor storage space and repainting costs. The Illinois Railway Museum is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
