Steam Locomotive 4039 Fundraiser
Now with your help we have the opportunity to enable families of today experience the exciting sights and sounds their own parents and grandparents witnessed first-hand behind this same locomotive in the 1960’s and 70’s. Please help us return this wonderful piece of New Jersey Transportation History to full operation for future generations to enjoy as so many of us did in the past.
The Museum is launching their 2011 Buy-A Bolt Fundraiser and is asking for your help to reach its goal of raising $100,000 to cover the cost of the fire box stay bolts. Like all steam engines, No. 4039’s firebox is held in its boiler by over 900 stay bolts. These bolts cost approximately $35 each or $100 each installed.
