Museum Launches Fundraiser for Historic Dining Car Restoration

The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum is happy to announce that an anonymous donor has agreed to match donations up to $5,000 for the exterior restoration of Nickel Plate Road Dining Car No. 127. The dining car is a regular fixture at the museum and is used for special events such as the Annual Car Show and the Holiday Train. Many interior improvements have been made to the car in recent years, now we’d like to restore the exterior back to its Nickel Plate Road appearance.

Our Museum has already committed considerable financial resources to this project and a generous donor familiar with the project has agreed to step forward with this matching challenge to offset the restoration expenses.

Donations can be made by clicking this link, in person at the museum during normal business hours, or by mail:
