Alaskan Prospectors Society

Tuesday, Jul 9, 2013 7:45p to 9:30p

Pat Durand takes us on a delightful roll down historical tracks with his program titled "Restoring Locomotive 557 for Operation by 2015." One of only 5 existing, the "Gypsy Rose Lee" locomotive, Alaska Railroad's last steam engine, is being lovingly restored for operation. One of 2120 built for the US Army Transportation Corps, the 557 forded Alaskan rivers in flood stage when diesels couldn't. A more romantic history doesn't exist.

Donations for rent and snacks greatly appreciated.
