Flying Yankee Open House

September 14, 2011

For all who enjoy a wonderful destination and the journey along the way, the Flying Yankee Restoration Group in N. Woodstock, NH is having their last open house for 2011 on October 7, 8, and 9.   If you’ve visited before, you’ll be amazed at their progress!

After 40 years of inactivity and neglect, an icon of American ingenuity and railroad history is again poised to return to service.  The Flying Yankee is one of only three 3-car, diesel-electric streamliners of its type ever built. After nearly seven years of disassembly, re-engineering, fabrication and rebuilding, Phase I of the restoration was completed in the fall of 2004 and the Flying Yankee is now well into Phase II of the lengthy restoration process.  Much progress has been made, and although there are still many details to complete, visitors can marvel and actually have a sense of the grandeur these beautiful streamliners exuded.  The goal is for the Yankee to serve as an icon for education, tourism, and economic development. 

     

Visit the Flying Yankee!  It’s a trip well worth taking.  Not sure you can make the trip? Well, you can still be a part of the restoration of this gem by supporting their restoration.  For sponsorship information, visit their website at www.flyingyankee.com.  The website is full of pictures, memorabilia, and how you can support their mission.
