Many preservation efforts have conquered hardship, but how many can say they have triumphed over a flood? Colin O’Brien of the Mid-Continent Railway Museum walks us through the extensive collection, restoration projects including Chicago & Northwestern #1385, and how they persevered through a devastating flood in 2008.
You can visit the Mid-Continent Railway Museum website to see all of their current projects!
