We here at the ALCO Historical & Technical Society are very proud to announce the very first recipient of the Richard T Steinbrenner Memorial Restoration Fund donation. This new annual program, in memory of our late Board Chairman and ALCO historian Dick Steinbrenner, will help fund a different ALCO related restoration or maintenance project every year. 2018’s inaugural recipient goes to the Leatherstocking Chapter NRHS/Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railway for brake valve overhaul of ALCO/MLW Locomotive #8223, the last model S7 in existence. Stay tuned for further information on how to apply to be a future recipient for your ALCO project.
