We are excited to announce that PSRMA has been awarded a $13,000 dollar grant to be used towards purchasing new starting batteries and engine lubricating oil for our low-nosed Southern Pacific GP-9 #3709. Among many other projects in the Mechanical Department, we hope to restore this locomotive to operable condition over the next few years. You can read more about the legacy of John H. Emery at
