Project 1352 St. Louis - San Francisco (Frisco) Railway 2-8-2 steam locomotive #1352 is the American Steam Railroad's steam locomotive project. We will be restoring the locomotive to operation in the Historic B&O Roundhouse in Cleveland Ohio, not only for the sake of running train trips, but to use as an educational tool. This will allow folks to see an example of the magnificent machines that were once the backbone of American industry and commerce.
So where do you fit in? Projects like these require large amounts of time, and even larger amounts of money. We need your help. Please consider donating to our cause or becoming an ASR member. Together, we can continue Preserving America's Railway Heritage!
