Tennese Valley Railroad Museum 630

Turn up the sound! Just gotta love the sound of the exhaust and the smell of the smoke! Kudos to the TVRM. This was a superb ride and it has been very well restored and looks like someone stayed up all night polishing it. While 630 has run a number of times, we were told we were some of the first revenue customers since it's restoration. What a ride!

 

#630 built by ALCO Richmond Works serial number 28446 with 46,700ftlbs of tractive effort, 200 lbs boiler pressure, a 2-8-0 wheel arrangement, 57 inch drivers, and 24x30 inch cylinders
