Boone Welcome Train Project

Welcome Train Project Goals:

  • Repaint, refurbish and relocate 2-8-0 Steam Engine, Tender and Passenger car that have been donated by the BSVRR to a resting spot on Hwy 30th and S Story Street
  • Have the words “Welcome to Boone” painted on the tender, greeting travelers at the 4-way stop encouraging them to visit.
  • Make this one of the most distinct landmarks anywhere along Hwy 30 and to promote our town’s Railroad Heritage.

If you would like to donate please contact any Boone Rotarian or mail those tax-deductible donations to:

Rotary Club of Boone/Welcome Train
PO Box 532
Boone, IA  50036
