Ex-L&N C30-7 Donated to Kentucky Museum

The Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation has received a donation of a non-operable C30-7 diesel.

The locomotive was a gift from the Collis P. Huntington Railroad Historical Society and is painted in the colors of Marshall University.

One of 44 of this model road-switchers ordered by the Louisville & Nashville from General Electric in 1979-80, No 7067 was retired from the CSX motive power roster in 1999 and donated to the Huntington Society in 2017.

Kentucky Steam plans to paint the 7067 into its original L&N Family Lines paint livery and place it on static display in Ravenna, Kentucky.

The group will need to raise funds to pay to move the unit this summer.
