Welcome to the T1 Trust Fundraising Center

The time is right to build America's Premier Steam Locomotive. Thought by many to represent the ideal fusion of speed and beauty, the T1 class deserves a second chance. Through generous donations and the hard work of a dedicated volunteer workforce, 5550 is beginning to take shape.

In order to sustain the momentum already achieved, the T1 Trust is pleased to offer a number of exciting giving opportunities. From ball caps to drawing sponsorship, a host of different options are available in the menu above.


The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) T1 Steam Locomotive Trust is a non-profit organization that believes in thinking differently about preservation. Through hard work, dedicated volunteers and the financial support of many generous donors from around the globe, the T1 Trust is constructing PRR T1 5550. Slated to become the fifty-third locomotive of its class when complete, 5550 combines stunning art deco design with a unique 4-4-4-4 wheel arrangement. The goal is simple; to provide mainline steam excursion service, and to set the World Speed Record for a steam locomotive.
