Hi all,

I have heard rumors that former NKP 2-8-2 number 624 on display in Hammond, IN, will be moving to the FWRHS in Ft. Wayne, IN to be displayed at the museum. A post on Trainorders.com said that the Northwest Indiana Times did an article on the story on November 15th, but I can't find it on their site.

Does anyone know if this is true, and if possible, could anyone send me a link to the NWI Times article?

Regards,
Thomas

FWRHS said in their post on Facebook after the press release that they may be restoring it to operation. They will be doing a cosmetic restoration initially, and inspect the internals of the locomotive while doing so. I think they will wait to restore it to operation, if they decide to, after 765's 15 year overhaul in 2020.
