Become a part of the Atlantic Club at Riverside and Great Northern Railway. Donate today to become a part of our history!

Purpose
Atlantic type locomotives 128 and 127 were the main motive power on the R&GN from 1949 to 1980. We no longer
have 127, but with the recent addition of 129 we now have an oil-fired Atlantic that will give us another aspect of steam
locomotive operation. With 128 eventually returning to service we will have two powerful locomotives to pull longer
trains.
But we need funding to get these locomotives into service for the needs of the R&GN. The Atlantic Club has been
established to fund the rebuilding and maintaining of the R&GN’s Atlantic type steam locomotives.


How
Fans of the R&GN who would like to see 129 in service as soon as possible and 128 again in the not-too-distant future
can donate to a fund that is overseen by a three-person committee, which will make recommendations to the board of
directors on priority project spending. Our priority is to get 129 operating in time for the 2021 season. After that we will
do what it takes to get 128 back in service. The more funding we get, the sooner 128 will be back in service since she last
operated at the R&GN in 1980.

Donation options
You may donate as much as you would like or as much as you can afford, but we have established the following
incentives for R&GN Atlantic fans. If you can’t donate the full amount all at once, you may provide a promissory note to
make the donation over the course of four years. You may also sign up for a monthly debit on your credit card for $12.80
a month (get it? $12.80 for 128 – just a little per month by a lot of people adds up to a lot to get 128 up and running
sooner than later). A little bit by a lot of people goes a long way!


Here are giving level options with special perks for those who donate:


Engineer = $1,000 donation. With your donation you will receive a jacket with an Atlantic Club logo on it. When 129 is
ready for service this spring we will hold a members-only day with free train rides behind 129 and a cookout. “Engineer”
donors will get throttle time on 129. The same event will happen when 128 is ready.


Conductor = $750. With your donation you will receive a sweater with an Atlantic Club logo on it. When 129 is ready for
service we will hold a members-only day with free train rides behind 129 and a cookout. The same event will happen
when 128 is ready.


Brakeman = $500. With your donation you will receive a baseball cap with an Atlantic Club logo on it. When 129 is ready
for service we will hold a members-only day with free train rides behind 129 and a cookout. The same event will happen
when 128 is ready.
