Up Next in Our Rail Yard
The North Carolina Railway Museum received $50,000 in state budget appropriations for our Save the Ten effort to move historical rail equipment to our rail yard. In December, State Representative Erin Pare, former Rep. Nelson Dollar and Dan Gurley, Deputy Chief of Staff to the NC Speaker, visited us in Bonsal (see photo).
Rep. Pare requested and House Speaker Tim Moore approved the appropriation for inclusion in the overall state budget. The grant was approved when the Governor signed the state budget in November 2021.
Plans are underway to move the 10 railcars in late spring 2022.
