A Restoration Offer From LHRy

Posted February 4, 2015 By Webmaster

We noticed that the wheels, axles, and frames of Thomas Edison’s two 1882 electric locomotives on display outside, in front of his West Orange Laboratory, are in an advanced state of deterioration.  They had been developed and used at Edison’s Menlo Park facility.  The needed  restoration would have been an excellent project for LHRy to fund.  However, National Park staff told us that they had the funding and that the work was to be completed soon.
