Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money for the continuing efforts by Friends of No 9 to restore of the last piece of the Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods Railway.

No. 9 represents not just an era, but the rare attraction that promoted wilderness preservation at the beginning of the 20th century. It carried the first tourists to Muir Woods at a time when providing easy public access to a wilderness park was a new idea and before most people could afford an automobile. We know John Muir rode the railroad to Muir Woods at least 3 times and was treated like a rock star when he visited.

We need your help! Restoration is underway. We have completed the removal of hazardous asbestos and are beginning to repair areas of weather-damaged metal on the 99-year old locomotive. 

Your donation will enable us to continue this next phase of restoration and have us closer to bringing the No. 9 home.
