(This amendment provides $250,000 the second year from the general fund for the Virginia Museum of Transportation, Inc. that will be used as one-time funding for the construction of the 611 Preservation and Education Facility as part of the Museum's Fire Up 611 campaign. The campaign is restoring a world-renowned, Virginia-made steam locomotive -- the Norfolk & Western Class J 611 -- to run again in excursion service, and building a preservation, education and maintenance facility to keep the engine operational and preserve the history.)
