Mammoet and Nashville Steam crews have been working hard this week to ensure No. 576 is loaded safely and efficiently. No. 576 rolled out of the shed with ease thanks to the Timken roller bearings and the dedication of the Nashville Shop employees who prepared the locomotive for long term display back in 1953. Their care and admiration for the locomotive is clearly evident today. Not long now ’til No. 576 is on the road to restoration!
