On a very windy day in April, 2012, Georgian Rail Video Productions chased old #630 down the Alabama Great Southern Railroad between Chattanooga, Tennessee and Attalla, Alabama. On the way, the crank pin on the right #4 driving wheel overheated, and forced the removal of the connecting rods on both sides, more or less turning 2-8-0 "Consolidation" #630, into 2-6-2 "Prairie" #630. Those makeshift repairs were made on the southbound run at Collinsville, Alabama. Contrary to what has already been said in multiple videos about the engine spending the night in Attalla, the train DID return to Chattanooga the same evening, arriving back at the museum about 2:00 AM on April 24th.
