Retired Rail Execs Pledge Matching Funds Toward Restoration

Two retired rail executives have pleged matching funds, up to $300,000, toward the restoration of Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway Steam Locomotive No. 576. The locomotive was donated to the City of Nashville in 1953 and put on display in Centennial Park until January 2019. The Nashville Steam Preservation Society leased the locomotive from Metro Nashville and raised funds to move the locomotive to the Tennessee Central Railway Museum where the restoration is underway.

Retired railroad executives and rail history supporters, Richard Tower and Wick Moorman, have partnered in offering the matching funds. The matches will be made for contributions of $1,000.00 or more between now and December 31, 2020.

In a prepared statement, Nashville Steam Preservation Society President Shane Meador said, “If we can raise the funds to maximize the matching potential, then we will be well over halfway to our goal, and the restoration timeline can remain on track.”
