Steamer Pulls Trips at Kentucky Museum

The Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation hosted its first steam-powered excursions last weekend using Lehigh Valley Coal 0-6-0T No. 126.

The saddle tank locomotive built by Vulcan Iron Works in 1931 pulled 17-half hour trips during the Ravenna Railroad Festival.

Museum officials said they sold nearly 700 tickets for the excursions. The festival drew an estimated 4,000 attendees some of whom wanted to ride the train but were turned away due to lack of space.

The excursion trains had a former Pennsylvania Railroad baggage car and a coach.
