MNG Wins $10k Webb Grant for #7!

While I would have liked to see the WW&F get this award again (and we did apply), I am very happy to see this prize go to MNG for #7.

Congratulations to MNG!

Wow that is nice.  Lets hope that will allow completion by this fall so it can do it's break in runs on the WW&F.

This shows what happens when railroads work together. We are very thankful to have Jason and Brian doing the boiler work on #7 and allowing us to help while the boiler is on Brian's property. There is some great synergy right now with both #7 and #9 being worked on in parallel. It will be great to see them both back in service. Stay tuned for more updates.
