Plans for historic steam locomotive SP 745 to pull an empty grain train on the New Orleans and Gulf Coast (NOGC) Railway have been delayed until at least August or September. However, our GoFundMe campaign to raise the needed money for this special freight excursion continues!
Initial projections that the NOGC would have an empty grain train for SP 745 to pull this spring did not pan out but the railway expects there will be several opportunities for this to happen in the late Summer and Fall when grain season resumes.
As we have stated all along if for some reason the planned steam freight excursion does not happen WE WILL REFUND YOUR DONATION!
In the meantime, we will keep you posted as to exactly when this special steam freight excursion is expected to take place in August or September.
Thanks for your patience and understanding! And THANK YOU for your donations!
