Project3713, the partnership to restore Boston & Maine steam locomotive #3713 at the Steamtown National Historic Site, is raising $2,000 for the restoration of the headlight. We are looking for donors who will help #3713 light her way to completion.

About Project3713:

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.

The #3713 headlight project has taken a huge leap forward thanks to volunteers from Johnson College in Scranton, PA. Their labor may reduce the cost of the headlight restoration. Any funds left over from the headlight project will be attributed to the general restoration fund.
Headlight rebuild underway.
