2317 has scored cylinders and two bad, rear drivers. Work should begin soon once 3254 is finished. We will not see her until the fall at the earliest.

When it comes to Steamtown, when they say "by fall" what they're really telling you is "next year."
 
Hope I'm wrong though!

The moral of the story is something we've learned about and know  
When it comes to restorations, Steamtown's rather slow!

Last I heard she's due out in October, but knowing Steamtown, although their shop crew is great, she won't be out for at least another year.

Well, while we're waiting for 2317 to come back, here's a great video (not mine) of it pulling a regular train

Awesome find! Man, 2317 was rollin'! I really miss her. Sure hope she gets back on the main soon. It would be great to hear her again, just like in that clip. She always sounded great headin' up to Moscow...

Hey DH,
 After the NKP 514 is out of the shop and squared away, from what I have been hearing, the 2317 will then go in the shop.   Nothing definite tho.

Yes, but neither the 514 nor the 2317 will be done within the next year.

What are they doing with 514 anyway (I know, a little off topic, but just wondering...). I don't think they need to rush too much though. 3254 can do the job just as well as 2317 can. Now as much as I love the 2317, I think Steamtown should worry about 26 first. We already have a mainline steamer for now; let's worry about the yard steamer before fixing 2317.

I've never actually seen 2317 running. The only 2 times that I have been there 3254 pulled the trains.
