Clinchfield F7 to Pull Ohio Excursion Trains

A restored former Clinchfield F7 locomotive will be featured on excursions being operated in Ohio later this year by the Ohio Rail Experience.

No. 800, a gray and yellow locomotive restored to its original appearance in 2018 for CSX’s Santa Train, is owned by the Southern Appalachian Railway Museum.

Excursions will depart during October from Lima, Springfield, Urbana, Leipsic, and South Charleston.

The excursions are operated by the Cincinnati Scenic Railway, a 501c3 Non Profit based in Cincinnati.

Money raised by the trips is used to preserve historic rail equipment. For more information, and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.ohiorailexperience.com

No. 800 most recently spent time pulling tourist trains in Florida and helped move Chesapeake & Ohio 2-8-4 No. 2716 to a new home in Kentucky for restoration.
