Following our successful Open House in mid-October, NSPS was back in Centennial Park to continue several projects on No. 576. Several of the tender roller bearings were drained of the 63-year oil, inspected, and refilled with new oil. We are very pleased to say they are in great condition! Additionally, the cylinder and valve covers were removed for the first time in decades. We removed the valve heads on both sides of the locomotive for inspection of the spool valves and stuffing box. We were very pleased with their condition! All great signs for the future of No. 576!

It's been two years since No. 576 departed from Centennial Park and officially hit the Road to Revival. We've made great strides since then and 2021 is looking to be our best year yet! Help keep the restoration on track by making a contribution at the link below. Every dollar will help bring this Nashville Treasure steam again! #StripeHype #576villebit.ly/3bxkpZP ...

Let's try to end the year on a high note with the last #TechTuesday of 2020! Take a look at the installation of No. 576's new standoff rings on the smokebox. It's always exciting to see something shiny and new going on the locomotive. It's been a tough few days for us here in Nashville but we'd like to acknowledge and thank the 6 Metro Police officers and first responders who acted so quickly on Christmas morning. Their bravery and efforts absolutely saved lives and ensured the Nashville spirit will prevail. #NashvilleStrong #StripeHype ...
