Corry R.A.I.L.S. (Corry Rail and Industrial Legacy Society) formed in 2016 with a purpose of finding some unique Corry related artifacts and bringing them home to demonstrate and display.
Six months after forming we had settled on what we hoped would be our first artifact … Project “A”…to attempt to purchase a rare Climax Locomotive Class “A” built in Corry in 1902.
In mid 2018 we visited it in Alaska and over the next year we achieved various stages in negotiations until we had a signed Agreement in August of 2019, while at the same time raising funds for its purchase and retrieval. In the Fall of 2019 we were back in Alaska to begin arranging for the packing and shipping in June of 2020.
… and then the fun and real work will begin. We originally formed as a Committee within Impact Corry, a non-profit 501(c)(3) and soon we will become a separate stand-alone non-profit.
Updates on our progress, photos, merchandise and opportunities will be shared at this site as well as on our facebook and instagram pages.
