Doug Clark | 223 project


Doug holds a B.A. degree in economics. He served our country from 68-72 as a Captain in the Army where he was part of the “Escort Detachment” returning our lost soldiers to their families for burial. He can claim no family members who worked on the railroad. His earliest memories of the railroad are watching his grandfather board the steam commuter to Bayonne New Jersey when he was eight. He worked for Ingersoll Rand as a Field Service Engineer becoming thoroughly grounded in the theory of air compressors and the repair of these complex machines. When the company moved Doug to Utah, he wandered into the Union Station and asked if he could volunteer. A brief interview later, and he became a valued part of the restoration team.

Doug brings to the #223 restoration team knowledge of pressure vessels and boilers which is what steam trains are all about. As a self starter, Doug fits right in when it comes to solving problems. When he cleans his fingernails, Doug can pound out music on the piano or strum a guitar.
