On a warm Sunday in June of 1927 E6s (s stood for superheated) Atlantic No. 460 competing with an aircraft of all things, eclipsed all prior speed records of her class and established a Washington-Manhattan Transfer record that was to endure as long as steam between those two points. The extra which became Known as the Lindburgh Special pulled a B-60-B class steel baggage-express car that was converted into a mobile darkroom with complete facilities for developing, printing, and editing the reels of motion pictures showing the return of Charles Linbergh to Washington after his historic flight across the Atlantic Ocean. In the twilight of a long career that included two world wars and the Lindbergh Special trip, E6s 460 plied her trade on the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Line ferrying tourists from Camden, NJ to South Jerseys many shore points.

The attached link will go to a photo of 460 in storage at Northumberland, PA. Its frightening to think how close many of these prized locomotives came to being destroyed.

Yes this engine is undergoing restoration, cosmetically that is but right now she is in the asbestos shed having all of it removed.  So this loco is not going full restoration its just being cosmetically restored.
