Save the Ten

Located less than five miles from the North Carolina Railway Museum (NCRM), which is home to the New Hope Valley Railway (NHVR), are 10 historic railroad cars parked at a disconnected railway siding on Duke Energy’s Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant property.

Our all-volunteer railway is raising funds to save the railroad cars from the scrap yard and needs nearly $100,000 to move all 10 cars to the museum’s rail yard.

In the mid-1990’s, the NCRM acquired four railroad cars which were then stored on the Shearon Harris’ property until they could eventually be moved to the museum’s rail yard.

Due to tightened security measures after 9-11, we were unable to enter the plant area to view our cars until late 2019. After visiting the museum’s four cars, a few NCRM volunteers discovered that Duke Energy had an additional six railroad cars they were willing to donate to the museum – if we could pay to move them.

For additional information concerning these ten railroad cars, see Save the Ten and Preserve NC Railroad History.

Thank you for your support of the North Carolina Railway Museum!  This solicitation for funds has been sanctioned by the NCRM Board of Directors.
