RR Museum gets Loco
Arizona State Railroad Museum acquires new locomotives

Al Richmond, chairman and CEO of the Arizona State Railroad Museum, may be in for a good year when it comes to his long-awaited railroad project in Williams. Thanks to a donation from the Salt River Material Group (SRMG), museum supporters are celebrating the acquisition of a 1954 40-ton GE switch engine from SRMG's Clarkdale cement plant. According to Richmond, the engine moved all of the cement products for the Glen Canyon Dam between 1958 and 1959. He added that very few of the engines exist today.
