Does anyone know when the Nickel Plate Road 757 will be moved from the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania to the Mad River and NKP museum in Bellevue OH? If so, will it be going through Enola and onto the NS Pittsburgh line and the Horseshoe Curve? I am interested in getting photos of the loco during this time and do not want to miss the move.

There is no schedule or hard time frame for this move. It was only recently inspected by Norfolk Southern for movement, but there is still work to do and money to raise for the trip home.

Mad River recently topped $100,000 in donations and has a donor match and raffle up to $10,000 until August:

They recently completed a series of test runs on the Strasburg Rail Road. Video update is here:
