What we do.

We will do tasks that make for a better trail experience and make for a better neighborhood or locale.

These can be done under two main themes.  Historical Initiatives and Targeted Feasibility Studies.


  • We will fund Historic Preservation projects along the MCRT corridor –and connecting trails.

  • Projects that restore/renovate/ or replace lost mile-markers or other railroad signaling equipment or signage along the MCRT or connecting trails will be given first priority. 

  • Projects that involve a kiosk display along a then-and-now theme. MuseumCroft is a company that does projects like this.

  • Projects that call out a forgotten industrial user in that locale.



  • Since the MCRT has already benefited from the DOT/DCR feasibility study circa 2019 we can then focus on some of the projects in the region that need a jump start.  There are several projects that connect to the MCRT that can use this effort.  We envision using the technical expertise and capability of Conservation Works LLC

In the coming weeks we will be developing a protocol for groups or communities who would be interested in submitting grant requests.  We will be announcing that in an upcoming newsletter.
