We're doing a bit of Summer cleaning during this week's #TechTuesday! Nearly seven decades of dirt and grime certainly took it's toll on the engine and trailing trucks. We are so thankful for our volunteers who are willing to put their clean clothes on the line to scrape and needle scale the muck away so we can begin inspections. Sign up for the NSPS mailing list at bit.ly/3ziQOfi for even more updates on all things 576! #SteamTheStripe ...

Nashville Steam would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Wally Pilkinton. Wally served as the president of the NC&StL Railway Preservation Society and was a longtime supporter of No. 576, advocating for it its relocation and restoration long before NSPS formed in 2016. We will miss our visits with him and his unending positive attitude. As his son recently said, Wally didn't derail but switched tracks to the next life waiting for him. Please join us in offering thoughts and prayers to the Pilkinton family during this time. ...
