This young man in a mere year has managed his way through the railroad community to accomplish two now three amazing feats of historical preservation. In his latest act he has acquired New Haven 4400 MU #5111 which also doubled as the last private parlor car in service on Metro North. He needs to raise $4000 within a month for its movement to Danbury for which it will then be restored. Someone please give this kid a medal, he deserves the best of honor for his endeavors. The full post is here.

Having met Orion, I really do believe that if anyone can do what he's doing, it's him. He's got damn good teachers (I'm talking to you Howard), is mechanically inclined and understands the value of money.

I come back for a rare mileage to share a new update on this project. Mr. Vuillemot has just 13 days to remove SPV #1001 from Metro North property and he needs your help to raise $10,000 for the move. I'd ask our members please help this young man aspire to his goal.

The Pullman Library should have the Specifications and drawings for the 5111 (Lot W-6916-C Plan W-52430) and the SPV.
