B&P Excavating owner Mike Brown added that W&M Welding will be setting the rails for the engine this week. “The thing about this is, it’s a community project,” Brown added. “No taxpayer money was involved. It’s all been donated by local people. It’s going to be quite a project when it’s done, we’re very proud to be part of it.”
