0-6-0T To Pull Trips at Kentucky Rail Museum

An 0-6-0T steam locomotive will pull excursions during two August weekends at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum in Versailles, Kentucky.

The locomotive is Lehigh Valley Coal Company No. 126 and it will operate on Aug. 20, 21, 27 and 28.

KentuckyThe trips are being made in part to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the museum.

Trips depart at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. each day on a two-hour round-trip. A highlight will be the Young’s High Bridge, which is 1,659 feet long and 283 feet tall.

Photo runbys will be staged of the train crossing a wood trestle.

No. 126 was built in 1931 by Vulcan Iron Works and is owned by John and Barney Gramling, a father and son team that restored the locomotive and takes it to various museums in the eastern United States.
