In March 2011, SMRV made the trip to the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC. Lehigh Valley Coal #126 "Sadie" was visiting the museum as well as the Amtrak 40th Anniversary Exhibit train. In this video you'll see the 126 as well as Southern GP30 #2601 on the museum grounds.
NCTM is located at the former Southern Railway Spencer Shops, once the SOU's largest steam locomotive repair facility which employed over 3,000 people at it's peak. After the closing of the shops, the SOU donated the land to the state of North Carolina. The first museum exhibit opened in 1983. The museum not boasts an impressive collection of restored aircraft, automobiles, and railroad equipment.
