The NHDOT is preparing to move the Flying Yankee to its new home. As mentioned above, this would be a great time to get the Yankee back on its trucks, but the funding for that effort will have to come from donations through the Flying Yankee Restoration Group. NHDOT estimates that it will require $50,000 to procure the necessary material and set up a track panel at the new site, to prepare the Yankee to accept the trucks, move the trucks from their current storage facility, and place the train on them.

The FYRG is starting a fundraising drive to raise the funds by this spring (2018) so that this work can be done. If you believe with us that the Flying Yankee deserves to be saved, restored, and back on the rails, please make a donation! We are a totally volunteer organization, all donations go directly to the preservation and restoration!
