Dear 557 enthusiast,

Welcome to the Locomotive #557 web page and thank you for your interest in the last steam locomotive to run on the Alaska Railroad. Number 557 has a long and proud history in support of our nation.

I am grateful to Monte Holm, the Jansen family, Engine 557 Restoration Company and others for serving as careful custodians of this precious artifact of our nation's heritage.

Finally, I am truly excited to know that with the help of many selfless individuals, she will once again be roaming Alaskan rails. Please consider becoming part of this restoration project!
