Many of you are probably familiar with the steam locomotive "Old 470" located in Waterville. There is a fairly popular and old cache placed on it by brdad.
Well, I stumbled onto some information today. It looks like the future of the locomotive is pretty bleak. It's in rough shape. The City of Waterville solicited bids this past May for either restoration or removal. They didn't receive any offers by the original deadline (likely because they did almost no advertising) and extended the deadline to end of August. I'm not sure when the bids are unsealed, so no idea of what the outcome is yet. Just figured I'd pass on the information. It'd be a shame to see this turned into scrap.
