Received this communications from a "railfan" in the trucking industry, edited for clarity:

Quote:
[We] Moved this ex-Reading 92891 from the Stewartstown RR in Stewartstown, PA to Durbin & Greenbrier RR in Durbin, WV – along with a move from [Reading & Columbia] in Columbia, PA of a BN caboose to Steam into History, along with a baggage car from the Midland Railway in Baldwin City, KS to the DGVR. Most of the trucks had 2 moves – tying this together with cranes, etc. to save on costs.

Today, we're loading a GE 45-tonner at the cement plant in Ravena, NY to York, PA for evaluation of “possible repairs” so that it could be used at some point on the STEW or the Northern Central.
