Welcome to the PRR T1 Trust Fundraising Dinner/Banquet Ticket Gateway (Now open to the public)

We are delighted to extend a special invitation to you for an exclusive dinner event hosted by the Pennsylvania Railroad T1 #5550 Trust. This will be our first time doing a banquet and hope to make it an annual event. The Dinner that follows the special donor open house will be used as a fundraiser to start construction of the cylinders that attach to the frame.

This intimate dinner affair promises to be an evening filled with camaraderie, appreciation, and insight into the progress of our endeavors. We are privileged to announce that our General Manager, Jason Johnson, will be offering a “steamy” presentation, providing an insider’s perspective on the latest developments within the T1 Trust. Additionally, we are thrilled to welcome esteemed guest speaker, Mr. Paul Nichini, a distinguished figure in the Railroad world renowned for his experiences as one of the last individuals to operate a steam locomotive at speeds exceeding 90 miles per hour (C&O #614). Mr. Nichini’s firsthand accounts are sure to captivate and inspire all those in attendance. You will have access to interact with Trust members that are building the locomotive and get all your questions answered.

Thank you once again for your unwavering support of the Pennsylvania Railroad T1 Trust. We look forward to the pleasure of your company.
