Today the Mass Bay Railroad Enthusiasts announced our Museum is one of 12 organizations that are recipients of Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Grants. The Mass Bay RRE established the Mass Bay RRE Railroad Preservation Fund in 2016 to support railroad preservation projects in New England.
The announcement was made at the Amherst Railway Society’s 50th annual Railroad Hobby Show January 27th at the Big E in West Springfield, MA.
The $1,000 grant to our Museum will aid in our work for the restoration of the historic Moose Brook bridge, and its relocation to serve as our Trout Brook bridge on our Mountain Extension to Route 218.
We are very grateful to the Mass Bay RRE for their support of our Museum. It has been the support like this from our many members and friends that has grown our Museum. Thank you!
