Project3713: Safety Valve #1
$625 of $3,800 goal
Each safety valve costs $3,800.
This GoFundMe campaign is for the first of the three valves.
Project3713 is a partnership between the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society and the National Park Service . Project3713, via the “America’s LocomotiveTM” campaign has taken on the task of raising half of the remaining $1.4 million dollars required to finish the restoation to full operating condition. The balance will be provided by #3713's owner, the National Park Service.
After more than 50 years in retirement, #3713 (named “The Constitution” during her service on the B&M) will return to passenger service thanks to the financial support of individuals and corporations who share an appreciation for the rich history of American railroads.

3713 committee: I'll fund the full cost of one safety valve if that will accord to me a lifetime pass to ride in the cab and hear my valve pop off.
