How did you get it ??
Decades ago, when i first tried to purchase the car in Houston, I worked up a plan how to move it out of the back yard and over to an old existing siding near a lumber yard. One brother said the neighbor would allow rolling over his property, etc. Is this how you got it out? Or is it still sitting there??
Glad you have it……. fix the roof and window seals first. Then off you go…….. section out the siding…clean out the old insulation so it will not catch fire when you re weld new pcs.
I will be in ALBQ soon to see he 2926. Retired so have the time. Wish i was nearer. I would volunteer to get it back to shape.
Members of the Museums
I am a member of the museum and a Director. The Alamo was donated to us by the man who bought the estate, We had it moved from Houston to our museum in Elmendorf, Texas, Several of us helped the mover get the car ready to be moved, followed it durning the move as well. I was there when the car was set on the Display Track, with the cranes. members of our museum built the display track the car is sitting on.
We are very interested in any information, especially photos of the Alamo 127. We plan to do a complete restoration of the car. Right now we are working on a cosmetic exterior restoration, untill we raise the funds for a complete job. we are working on parts of the interior as well.
The Alamo is on display at our museum division, Elmendorf Heritage and Railroad Museum. Tours on Saturdays 12-6,
