“Speaking of 611, has NCTM said anything about having her running on museum trackage during our convention in May?”


  The 611’s presence is possible. Nothing is definite though. Working on the details…

I have heard similar reports as well. Unfortunately I we will just have to wait and see how this plays out. It would be sad to see excursions canceled. Speaking of 611, has NCTM said anything about having her running on museum trackage during our convention in May?

So I was reading my emails from various sources that I receive each day and one caught my eye... the writer claimed that last month NS said they would no longer allow 611 to operate on its rails, only travel too off NS sites was going to be allowed and that without an excursion train involved.

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 while I expect that some sort of partnership with Amtrak would be needed since NS has withdrawn its support of the operation and sold its excursion cars is there anything to be concerned about?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???
