You can help restore Chicago & North Western No. 1385 to service. How? By sharing any images you control the rights to, moving or still, in nearly any format. Mid-Continent Railway Museum's 1385 rebuild Task Force is looking for your help in creating displays for public viewing showing the history and life of Mid-Continent's most famous locomotive.

We are interested in all types of visuals, posters, postcards, photos, video, movies (yes film), paperwork, blueprints, C&NW materials - any and all items that could be connected to the working life of the 1385. We want to tell the story of the life and use of this engine both on the C&NW and at Mid-Continent Railway Museum. Your images will help tell that story.

Graphic Designer and MCRM member Randy Long has offered to scan and then return these items. He can turn just about anything; prints, slides, negatives (color and B&W) and printed materials, into a digital image and can photograph other artifacts that you may have.
