Canadian National Railways recognized the historic significance of 6218 when it issued this train order for the locomotive’s
final excursion trip, and again by donating it as a memorial in Fort Erie. Will you recognize its historic value as well
and help support its preservation?
CN 6218 was last restored in the nineteen-eighties. Since then it has been on display, but exposed to the elements.
Thirty years outside has caused severe deterioration which will eventually destroy the locomotive. Estimates of the cost to
preserve the locomotive for the future range as high as $400,000! This seems like an enormous amount of money, but it breaks
down into many small donations.
There are three ways you canhelp preserve 6218.
- * Become a member of the Friends of 6218 today!
- * Donate whatever funds you can.
- * Donate your help to raise funds.
Don't let the 6218 disapper into history. Help make it live forever!
