Artifacts from a 99-year-old locomotive will be on display through early March at Mesa's Red Mountain Multigenerational Center.

The bell, whistle and light from the city-owned train are available for public viewing along with other railroad memorabilia and photos.

The display is part of a fundraising effort to restore the 1912 locomotive, which has been at Mesa's Pioneer Park since 1958. A volunteer group has raised $37,000 out of an estimated $80,000 for the effort.

The project includes moving the train to a more prominent location in the park, at 526 E. Main St.

The traveling display can be seen at the multigenerational center, 7550 E. Adobe, from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Information: www.saveourtrain.com
