The info on the TWVRPS site is hopelessly out of date. The equipment from the Virginia Scrap Iron & Metal yard was rescued last August. The 15,000 gallon tender is now sitting behind M2c no. 1151 at the Virginia Museum of Transportation. The 16,000 gallon tender is at Will Harris' shop in Goshen, being refurbished for display behind M2 no. 1134, which is going to Portsmouth, VA. The other M2, no. 1118 went to the Roanoke NRHS Chapter along with one of the CW diesels. The second diesel is also currently in the NRHS chapter's yard for cosmetic restoration (as is the 1134), and will go to the VMT. The funds raised by TWVRPS are going to the NRHS chapter to support the restoration work.
