Hello RYPN community,

I wanted to share a couple of quick notes about Project3713, the partnership to restore B&M #3713 at the Steamtown National Historic Site.

We launched our revised website today (http://www.project3713.com) and along with it a few new announcements.

First, if you are in the northeast PA area, please consider attending our Spring Mixer at the Susquehanna Brewing Company in Pittston, PA on May 4th. It will be a great way to meet our team and supporters. Tickets are $25. Details can be found at: http://www.project3713.com/spring-mixer-at-the-susquehanna-brewing-company-may-4-2017/

Second, we are launching some new fundraising options. Our supporters frequently ask us for ways to help fund specific, essential parts of the locomotive. In response to that, we have two new GoFundMe programs:

1) Safety Valves - She needs three new safety valves, and we have started a GoFundMe for the first one: https://www.gofundme.com/project3713-safety-valve-1

2) Headlight - We are fortunate that much of the original headlight is reusable, so we are seeking donations for completion of sheetmetal work and reassembly. https://www.gofundme.com/wm-project3713-headlight

If you are looking for more information on Project3713, please download our latest newsletter: http://www.project3713.com/2016/12/22/winter-2016-7-newsletter-released/

All the best,

Rob Davis
