An L&N Memory

We don’t usually think of the Louisville & Nashville as having served Ohio although some of its passengers trains originated and terminated at Cincinnati Union Terminal.

Some L&N transfer runs would have crossed the Ohio River to interchange with other railroads in the Queen City.

But the L&N proper ended in Newport, Kentucky, across the river from Cincinnati.

Shown is L&N Alco RS3 reposing at DeCoursey Yard on the Kentucky side of Greater Cincinnati on Dec. 28, 1972.
