Tri-Lite Inc., a company that makes a variety of lights and light covers, recently made a much-appreciated donation to the Douglas Railroad Museum. The company gave the museum replacement lenses for the front of the steam locomotive.
"Bill Truitt at the Museum," says Cindy Porter, Executive Director of The Enterprise, "contacted the company and they offered to send the lenses free of charge. Bill is in the process of replacing them. We are really excited about the upgrade and truly appreciate the donation."
Porter continues, "As most know, the steam engine and the rail cars are in need of extensive repairs. We were amazed to see what a positive impact this donation had in the overall appearance of the engine. It's also a step in the right direction to giving our rail cars the attention they need."
