The ex-NH EF-4 #301 (CR 4601)is apparently awaiting pick up by the P&W in Old Saybrook, CT for movement to the IRM. Hopefully, it will be restored to her NH colors.

another rumor within the rumor is that the engine will be cosmetically restored at the altoona shops before carrying on. this may not be true either.

I heard that rumor too, but it would be kinda surprising as the latest Ive seen, the locomotive, even as rare as it is, is in very rough shape. I think it would be cool, like you, to have that in the collection, but Im really hoping IRM didnt do that. There are so many pieces in the collection that need so much time and money and I thought the museum was regionally focused, which, this is clearly not. Im a quality over quantity guy but Im just a donator, not a decision maker.
