About NESCo

New England Steam Corporation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our all-volunteer membership is comprised of people from all walks of life, including railroaders, mechanics, machinists, electricians, carpenters, educators, historians, enthusiasts, and many others.

Our mission is to restore, care for, and operate Maine Central steam locomotive #470. Our members will provide hands-on work and technical knowledge to revive vanishing trades and skills. Safety and quality work are our first concern, and we will take pride in showing off our steam locomotive both in the shop and on the road!
