On April 17, 2002, The Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad announced a major fundraising campaign. Named after its mission to support and assure the preservation, restoration and continued operation of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, the Another Century of Narrow Gauge Steam campaign has become the most successful fundraising campaign ever undertaken by the Friends. As of November 2003, a total of 675 contributors--most of whom are Friends members--have made donations and/or pledges totaling more than $600,000.

Funds raised by the ACNGS campaign will be used for capital for short and long-term operating needs; historic preservation, interpretation, and public education; and the establishment of a permanent C&TS endowment fund.

We invite you to learn more about the campaign using the resources below, and we hope you will join us in helping to preserve America’s most authentic steam era railroading experience.

The 2005 ACNGS Annual Report is now available.
