Hello everyone,
I am 15 years old and new to RYPN. Someone said that i should join because of a project i am doing. On Wednesday October 26th i am moving a 1930 Boston and Maine boxcar from Waterbury CT to Woodstock CT. This project is mainly funded by donations and i could still use a lot of help! Please check out this link to make a donation and/or to see photos of the boxcar. https://www.gofundme.com/1930boxcar The photos can be found in the description on the go fund me page. I can't thank people enough for donating. This move could not be done without the 250+ people who have donated so far!
Any amount helps. I need to have all donations in by Monday. The total cost of the transpiration will cost $5000.
Thank you
Orion Newall

Orion, got a quick question. So where you're raising $3000 and the cost is $5000, where's the difference coming from? Just a bit curious...

I would make a safe assumption that his family, which are already willing to have a boxcar in their yard, is helping out a little bit financially. Also, using the same methods I use on restoring my boxcar, he probably has some close connections and friends also willing to help outside of the internet.

Just a thought.

Congratulations! We need more of THIS sort of result when a youth contacts RYPN for help.

Congratulations, Orion! There's a "new star" in sincere railroad preservation.
