WAUKESHA, Wis. – Trains Magazine is accepting proposals through Oct. 28, 2016, for its annual $10,000 preservation award. The grant will go to a nonprofit, educational organization in the U.S. or Canada for the restoration or repair of a locomotive, rolling stock, or a structure; or for the establishment or conservation of archives.

Top priority goes to projects of regional or national significance, for which the grant will make a significant impact, and that will be spent by Dec. 31, 2017. Restoration projects nearing completion are preferred.

Proposals should be brief, no more than 200 words in length, and include basic project budget information and up to five images. Applications may be sent via email to or mailed to Trains Preservation Award, P.O. Box 1612, Waukesha, WI 53187. Trains Editor Jim Wrinn will announce the winner Nov. 12, 2016, at the Association of Tourist Railroads & Railway Museums’s annual meeting in Savannah, Ga., and on Trains News Wire.

The winner will be profiled in Trains’ January 2017 issue in the Preservation column and online.
