Thank you, Co-Curators!

Yesterday, we began installing your new exhibit, Camping in the Jungle: Stories of Scouting in the Panama Canal Zone and expect to add the finishing touches by the end of this week!

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the exhibit, but in the meantime, we wanted to thank you all for sharing your stories, ideas, and opinions with us.  Your contributions have brought so much life and depth to the exhibit.

We hope you can join us on March 12 for the joint Panama Canal Society / PCMC Friends meeting to see the exhibit in person!

Later this spring and summer, we will be calling on you once again to lend your curatorial skills and knowledge to the second scouting exhibit, which will be on display at the PCS Reunion in Orlando!

    Dear Canal Museum friends,
    I’m the founder and co-executive director of Earth Train (www.earthtrain.org), the NGO that founded and runs the 4,000-hectare Mamoní Valley Preserve. Next year, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of our inaugural trans-American train campaign that we did with Southern Pacific Engine #2472. We’re looking forward to doing an anniversary reunion in Panama with a trans-continental rail journey, of course. We’d love to do it with a steam locomotive. Are there any functioning or salvageable steam locomotives anywhere in Central America?
    We’d be grateful to hear from anyone who might advise us in that regard. Thank you!
    Nathan Gray

    As you may know, Kansas City Railroad runs the old/former Panama Railroad on the Isthmus, and which it has done very successfully. I first contacted Peter Hansen to attend the UF Canal Centennial, and am very pleased all can view his very interesting presentation at the Linda Hall Museum, Kansas City, Kansas, for the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal which one can enjoy on the Internet. I recall was interested in an endeavor w/an associate from Kansas City Railroad on a new adventure in South America and now a few years later I would expect know a lot more of the this that interest you (Diablo boy! 🙂
