NP Dining Car In Tacoma - Kickstarter is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.


A 1910 NP Dining car that was moved from Easton WA, to Tacoma a few years for restoration is under the gun to be moved.

The LeMay Family Collection has offered a permanent home for storage and restoration. The owner of the car needs to raise 17k by end of the month to get the car to this new location.

Below is the plea for help through Kickstarter to fund the transportation costs. The Kickstarter site has a lot of good information.

Help if you can!
