I just happened upon this information, Union Pacific will be restoring locomotive #4014, a 4-8-8-4 that's been on static display in Pomona since the early '60s. I wonder if JR East's restoration activities are known at UP. Apparently this has been fairly well cared for, including greasing of various bearings throughout the drive system.

Here's an excellent video posted in the last 24 hours by TN5DMK2. This is a collection of video recorded between September 2012 and August 2013 featuring locomotives C57 1, C56 160, C11 227, C11 190, C12 66, C11 325, C10 8, C61 20, C57 180, C56 44, and C11 207. The lines are: JR West Yamaguchi Line, Mooka Railway, JR East Suigun, Shin'etsu Main, Ban'etsu West, and Narita Lines, Chichibu Railway, Oigawa Railway, and JR Hokkaido Hakodate Main Line. A really great collection of footage, nearly an hour long. All great looking locomotives, I like the proportions and drivers of C61 20 the most.
