The historical AT&SF 2926 steam engine will be the largest 4-8-4 locomotive in operation in the United States and will be available for tourist excursions & charter service once completed. The restoration site is open to the public for free tours (weather permitting) every Wednesday and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Group tours can be arranged on any day by appointment. This is a great opportunity to see the restoration work up close and personal. As of 2018, over 170,000 volunteer hours and 3 million dollars in contributions have been invested in the restoration and the project is about 95% completed. The huge tender has been fully restored and the engine's boiler was successfully fired up for the first time since the late 1950's on August 20, 2018. The annual open house is scheduled on a Saturday in September between NM State Fair and Balloon Fiesta. Check the Events Calendar for additional special events in December. This is a non-profit organization.
