The Save Our Train Committee will be at Pioneer Park on Saturday, April 13th, during the "Celebrate Mesa" event from 10am to 2pm. Come by and say high and find out how we restored the locomotive!
Mesa's Save Our Train Committee is a 501(c)3 organization sponsored by the Foundation for Mesa Parks and Recreation. Since the train was built in 1912, the same year Arizona gained statehood, the committee is an Official State of Arizona Centennial Project as designated by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission. The organization was the Mesa Historical Preservation Award winner in 2012 and named "Best Steam Locomotive Restoration Project" by the New Times in their annual Best of Phoenix awards in 2014.
