How can I help?

The San Antonio Railroad Heritage Museum is pleased to announce Mr. Scott Lindsay as it's new SP #794 Restoration Project Manager. As the President/CEO of Steam Operations Corporation, Mr. Lindsay brings to the table vast amounts of knowledge and experience of the processes required to restore San Antonio's steam locomotive. Even though Mr. Lindsay and his company is based out of Muscle Shoals, AL, he is engaged with the SP 794 project and is actively communicating with the Friends of the SP 794 concerning their tasks and accomplishments.

The Friends of the SP #794 feel that the Pros definitely out weigh the Cons in restoring this piece of San Antonio’s rich railroad heritage back to an operational status. If we do not restore and preserve this piece of history, it will literally rust away to were nothing is left to educate our future generations on the machines of the Industrial Age, which is what made the United States the great nation that it is.

The Friends of the SP #794, along with Mr. Lindsay are “Committed to seeing 794 Steam Again!” However, this is a major project and naturally it comes with a big price tag and this is why we need your help.

You might say, “Well, I don’t know anything about steam locomotives. How can I help?”
You can help by getting involved with this project in many different ways:

  1. Spread the word about this project to your friends and business associates.

  2. Become a member of the San Antonio Railroad Heritage Museum and volunteer your skills to the work that needs to be done. We are always looking for prospective new members who have skills and talents that can be used to benefit our cause. So if you can turn a wrench, paint with a paint brush, or air brush, perform historical research, come up with fund raising ideas, we want you on board with us. If you have a background in marketing, woodworking, welding, or have worked in a machine shop, etc., we definitely need to talk!

So what are you waiting for? “Let’s get San Antonio Steaming Again!”
