Well, 2018 has sure been an exciting and very productive year for American Steam Railroad Preservation (ASR) and the team working to get the Reading T-1 No. 2100 back in steam. Thanks to all of dedicated and faithful donors and volunteers who have helped us get to where we are today. Without you, this would not be possible. Thank you! Steam will return to Cleveland in the not too distant future with your continued help and support!

We are less than $36,000.00 away from being able to complete the firebox work, complete a hydro and a steam test. We're so close, we can taste it! Won't you consider making a donation today?

All,

ASR continues to make great progress on the 2100 in Cleveland. We are working on more than one front right now...not just the firebox is receiving attention now! See the video link below to our January update.

We are less than $30,000.00 away from our needed goal to finish the firebox work on the 2100. We appreciate all of your past donations and look forward to your continued partnership with ASR in bringing the very first and iconic Reading T-1 4-8-4 back to steam. The contributions continue to come in but we still need more to reach our goal.

The print is a very fine watercolor. I am reminded of the effort by the FEBT in the 1980s/90s with their print series of the railroad. Watercolor prints should decorate every rail enthusiast's home, as I see it.

O,

Glad you like it! We're quite fond of it as well! Every steam fan should add one to their collection.
