As we work towards the completion of the Chicago & Northwestern 1385 steam locomotive rebuild, many things are in process. Currently, much of the work is focused on mounting and assembly. The Mid-Continent Railway Museum (MCRM) is excited to announce we have hired an additional locomotive specialist to support the work being done by SPEC Machine. MCRM has hired TJ Doyle. TJ comes with 20+ years of experience on locomotive rebuilding. He has worked for Kettle Moraine Railway and Mid-West Locomotive and Machine. TJ lives in the area and has winters off from his current career as an operating engineer. We look forward to his help and experience as we work to bring this project to completion.
