I found out the answer over on TO. Not sure why it seems to be such a secret but unless what I read is wrong it's going to the Roots of Motive Power where they have a 1/2 mile of track to run on. Again.. seems a shame she can't show off on the line in Oregon, I would love to just take a nice ride behind her. But I understand the owner gets to decide obviously.

If things were to fall right someday, that isolated museum trackage in Willits could possibly span a small creek and acquire a connection with the former NWP right within yard limits. This would give the group a choice of either trying to extend operation North to the old siding of Longvale, a distance of approx. 13 miles. Pretty flat, steel bridges and at least one tunnel. The other direction South to Ukiah , would be about 25 miles with a steep grade out of town.

Just musing here, but I can't help but think that this has already been quietly thought about in the past by some of those that are heavily involved.

Agreed, what a shame and waste to be locked to a 1/2 mile loop. Looking at a map, that museum seems very land locked with buildings surrounding it. Might be quite hard to get a connection to the NWP.

You'd think if you spent that much on it, you'd want to see it be somewhere where it could actually run and pull tourist trains etc.
