    New Haven, Kentucky is a small town located in the heart of the Bluegrass State, just next door to the Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. There’s definitely no shortage of Southern Hospitality in New Haven. Originally called Pottenger’s Landing, the town is presently home to a population of just under 1,000 people. When the railroad finally arrived in 1856, the town grew and prospered, having a much faster and reliable way to transport goods and people to Louisville. Today, New Haven is still known as a railroad town, home of the Kentucky Railway Museum and an iconic steam locomotive, Louisville & Nashville #152.

    bluh pooy lets not Restore the diesel engine just keep the steam locomotives alive and well especially if we made one fired by lp or natural gas with producing steam to run it with the modern touch of communication devices for safety reasons and see if we would go back to running steam locomotives again instead of diesel locomotives or electric locomotives lets go back to steam again because it's more efficient and we can have them run on a much cleaner fuel l.p. or natural gas because steam locomotives have way way much more powerful than the ones today and there isn't no match to a chug chug of a steam locomotive while taking off that people love most the sound of a steam locomotive whistle that can't go wrong with that because back in the day when steam was king nobody else had the idea of natural gas or l.p. to run a steam locomotive and as of today diesel locomotives are dirty burning diesel fuel and polluting our air we breath and that's not good at all and the electric locomotives on the other hand are junk because there under powered for freight and they stupid looking and a waist of tax payers time and money when putting the money into something worth while would be start building steam locomotive again

      Steam in and of itself is more efficient, but steam locomotives are much more labor intensive than a diesel as well. With a diesel you start it up and it goes. With steam once you fire up the firebox it takes hours to get it up to steam to be ready to roll. Even then with all the exposed driving rods, etc. they have to be greased and oiled often. Diesels have gotten much cleaner than they used to be and much more efficient as well. Don't get me wrong, I love watching a steam locomotive as much as the next guy but in reality they just can't compete with a diesel when it comes to labor and maintenance and cost for a railroad is always going to be the bottom line.

    Nice. Too bad only 3(?) l&n engines were saved from scrap. the other two are 0-8-0 switchers I believe.

    Thanks for sharing this great video and a little history on this L & N steam locomotive. I didn't know it had run on the L & N Line from New Orleans to the Florida Panhandle.

      Thanks for sharing this information,as I last time I checked for it on Surviving Steam Locomotives in the U.S.A.,it was still in a Park in Bainbridge,Ga.

      Rebel9668 12 days ago

      I would too. Unfortunately there are no engines inside the hull of it from what I understand, it's just an empty shell.
