At its Fall Conference at West Coast Railway Heritage Park, the HeritageRail Alliance presented its annual awards. To see them, go to:

Curious, is there a “Significant Achievement -Diesel” award?

We do give a Diesel award, but this year were unable to identify a good candidate. Got one lined up for next year, though.

Lookup "Friends of ATSF 1708" on Facebook. Sam Bailey has done amazing work on this locomotive since it was donated 2 years ago, and she is looking simply amazing! He has done all of this work himself (as far as I know) with not a lot of financial backing.

I figured SP 9010 in Niles Canyon would be a shoe-in.

9010 is a terrific project, but it isn't complete yet, which is why we couldn't recognize it this year. They're still working on its engine.

Hi Aaron,

To me it seems like the diesel preservation activities at IRM the last few years have been note worthy. I am sure there is a very small group of really hardworking volunteers behind this activity that deserve recognition. What comes to mind is the re-engining of Santa Fe FP45 #92 and restoring it to operation. The restoration of Rock Island GP7 4506. And the acquisition of CB&Q U-28B #114.

Another diesel restoration of note is that FP45 at Orange Empire.

In fact we gave an award to the Orange Empire FP45 a year or two ago. We don't award acquisitions of rolling stock, only restorations.
