This EXTREMELY SUCKS!!! I had wanted to start a FUND ME to buy the Y6a for about 5 million to keep it in Roanoke and drag it to Spencer shops to see what could be done. Perhaps the Va Transportation folks need to be replaced with competent folks??? Has it actually ben 5 years? Seems like 3.

The timetable for the dead-in-tow move back west is up in the air due to the pandemic. Efforts by the Va.
