Actually I thought 1218 was restored from a stationary boiler back to operational status...?

  At the risk of opening a can of worms, or resurrecting an old topic, exactly why did NS end the steam program?

  Link had nothing to do with the restoration of 1218 from a display 
  piece to operational status. That was Bob Claytor's dream, and executed 
  by the Steam Shop crew in Birmingham, Alabama removed from Musuem on 
  May 10, 1985, completed in Spring, 1987. Sadly the 1218 was only to 
  run through the end of 1991 before being placed back in the shop for 
  major work. It was not a top priority project and was worked only on 
  occasion. Three days after Graham Claytor died in 1994, orders from Bob 
  Lovelace of NS in Norfolk stopped all work on 1218.
