- #615 was moved to Woodbourne Yard by Septa this morning. She has "VGNX" reporting marks, which appear to be the Virginia Railroad Historical Society.

Thanks Ben. Great news that it was ultimately saved from the torch. The body actually looks to be in very good shape for a 50+ year old loco.

I do still miss seeing it in gel train service though.

The 615 was bought by a private individual and is being shipped to Belington, WV on the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley RR's, West Virginia Central operation. Not sure what plans are for it.

Thank you! Hopefully a nice cosmetic restoration at least.
