  • Historical preservation organizations restoring and preserving antique locomotives and trains for display in enginehouses.
  • Museums and tourist attractions showcasing collections of vintage locomotives and trains in enginehouses.

  • Supply companies providing equipment, parts, and materials to enginehouses.
