    NS discontinued its steam excursion program, selling the six passenger cars at auction Thursday 8/17. 611, still at the station down the street, doesn't have a car to pull anymore.

    A new update of WBDJ's website reports that "the excursion coaches went to the three buyers, including a scenic railroad in New York State, a tour company in Alaska and the North Carolina Transportation Museum. The winning bids were higher than expected, averaging around $200,000 for a single rail car".

    Those 38s will make great shortline power for a number of buyers.

    Maybe there will be some news on a site about 611?
