NASHVILLE — Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis 4-8-4 No. 576 is safe at the Tennessee Central Railway Museum today after pausing over the weekend for photos en route at Union Station.

The locomotive had been moved by truck out of Centennial Park in January to a location on the Nashville & Western short line, where work ensued to reunite the engine and tender and prepare it for being towed across CSX tracks to the museum. For the diesel power, CSX temporarily renumbered CW44AC No. 527 to No. 576 and added a NC&StL emblem on the nose for the occasion.

Restoration of the steam locomotive is expected to take two years and cost as much as $2 million. Once completed, it would run the Nashville & Eastern short line.
