We at Louisiana Steam Train Association (LASTA) are deeply moved and very excited by the response we have received from railfans and others on our plans to have historic Southern Pacific steam locomotive # 745 pull a freight train on the New Orleans and Gulf Coast Railroad in the coming weeks.
Currently, there are several thousand likes and shares between the various Facebook pages. Think about it!
If each one of you turns that excitement about our special steam freight excursion into a simple One Dollar donation …we would have more than enough money to pay for this once in a lifetime railroad event AND, with the extra money, we would be well on our way toward the cost of rebuilding SP 745’s boiler next year as required by the FRA.
So how about it EVERYBODY! Click on our GoFundMe page and donate just 1 dollar or more if you can!
