No more steam on NS?

Actually, the first release of authentic news about 611 should be in the form of a press release by Norfolk Southern or by Virginia Museum of Transportation, or a joint release. 
So, stop listening to the rumors and look to the source. Just my .02 worth.

I checked Google and the only thing I can find is a report that someone on the NKP list had received an email back in 2016 saying NS had dumped 611 and would not allow it to operate on its rails any more.  The ONLY report of this happening is this bogus post that prompted someone to ask if anyone could confirm it.

Is there any truth to this?  If so I would have expected that this email list would be the first to publish it and comments out the yazzo over such a move... while I expect that some sort of partnership with Amtrak would be needed since NS has withdrawn its support of the operation and sold its excursion cars is there anything to be concerned about?  How 'bout possible excursions this year... anyone know anything???
