I am starting this thread because I feel that having a nice place to keep information about the restoration of Frisco 1522 on the Frisco forums is a must. The SLSTA members are getting older every day, and their knowledge might be fleeting, so we should be asking our questions now while we still can! This thread is for asking questions about Frisco 1522’s restoration/maintenance during operation by the St. Louis Steam Train Association, and for any former members/helpers to clarify any questions we might have. Questions: 1.What was your starting budget for the restoration?a.Was this money gathered from donations, or personal assets?2.How did the SLSTA members come together?a.Who decided to restore a Steam Locomotive?
