Another Century of Narrow Gauge Steam II Campaign
The ACNGS II campaign, launched on May 25, 2007, seeks to raise $2 million
over five yeras. Building on the success of the first ACNGS campaign, this fundraising
program will allow us to take the next steps to restore and
preserve the unique historic assets of the C&TS. The priorities for this new
effort come directly from the Friends strategic plan, and 100% of the Board
of Directors have already made pledges. To strengthen our endeavor we will
reach out to corporations, foundations and appropriate government entities.
And, as in the past, we will also focus on the generosity of our membership.

Richard L. Dorman Collection of Narrow Gauge Images
The collection is devoted to the narrow gauge railroads of Colorado and New Mexico, comprising
some 20,000 black and white images and 6,000 color slides. This acquisition places the
Friends' library and archive among the most important such institutions in the country, if not
the world. The Board of Directors mandated that funds needed for accession, storage, scanning,
and publication of guides and catalogs must not impose a burden on regular operating monies.
In short, we must raise money for those activities. We envision funds coming from those
members who might not be as active in the restoration work in Chama and Antonito.
