Posted by Brian Schmidt on Friday, July 14, 2017 10:25 AM

WAUKESHA, Wis. – Trains Magazine is accepting proposals through Sept. 15 for its annual $10,000 preservation award. The grant will go to a nonprofit educational group in the U.S. or Canada for the restoration or repair of an important locomotive, unique rolling stock, or for archives.

Priority goes to projects of regional or national significance, for which the grant will make a significant impact, and that will be spent by Dec. 31, 2018. Projects nearing completion are preferred.

Proposals should be no more than 200 words, and include a basic project budget and up to five images. Applications should be sent by email to or mailed to Trains Preservation Award, P.O. Box 1612, Waukesha, WI 53187.

Associate Editor Steve Sweeney will announce the winner Oct. 7 at the Heritage Rail Alliance annual meeting in Minneapolis, Minn., and on Trains News Wire. The winner will be profiled in the December 2017 issue.
