The 1,472-day inspection of No. 58 is an investment in her future. The work performed during this mandatory overhaul will keep her operating safely and reliably for years to come. It will take at least two years to complete, but without the necessary funding, it could take much longer. If you love the sites and sounds of No. 58 pulling passenger trains up and down the Red Clay Valley, please make an investment in No. 58's continued operation by making a donation today.
