You may recall that there used to be a page in the online HeritageRail Alliance magazine called Project Reports. It was my attempt to track all the active North American restorations and other large capital projects. I let it lapse when we switched over to the new website.

Now I'm attempting to revive it and am compiling a new list that is more complete than the old one. See it below. I know there are plenty that are missing because you can't find them online. Even so, the number is impressive. I'm always amazed at what is being accomplished.

Please review the list and let me know if you find errors, omissions and additional info. Comment here or email me at aaronmona@aol.com.

"New Hope & Ivyland NJ Virginia Blue Ridge 0-6-0 #9"

Should read:

SMS Rail Lines NJ Virginia Blue Ridge 0-6-0 #9

New Hope & Ivyland has had ZERO to do with this loco's restoration to service other than selling the loco to SMS.

One of the three in KY is most definitely NOT active, I don't think we have to name which one it is.

Also I thought Orange Empire was restoring Ward Kimball's engine "Emma Nevada"

Plus Walt Disney World #1 "Walter E. Disney" is close to finishing overhaul, and WDW #3 "Roger Broggie" just began overhaul at Strasburg.

Then there's the 4-4-0 Crown that's being restored into whatever the next available ET&WNC roster number at the Doe River Gorge Christian Camp in Hamilton, TN.

Since the J&L 58 is finished, I guess the only thing I have to add is:
Youngstown Steel Heritage Museum EL 3639 / Conrail 6670 SDP45

Regarding the B&LE 2-10-4, so far I'm considering it an acquisition. Haven't read anything yet that says they've started the restoration. I know that sounds picky, but I have to draw the line somewhere. Doubtless it will migrate to the active list soon.

Thanks to those who responded with other projects. Much appreciated and please keep them coming. Once I figure out how to do it, this list will be displayed on the HRA website and updated as things change.
