CSX Repaints Diesel into L&N Livery for Museum

April 26, 2022

A former Louisville & Nashville C30-7 locomotive has been repainted into a Family Lines System livery.

CSX repainted the No. 7067 at its Huntington, West Virginia, shops and has donated it to the Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation.

Kentucky Steam will display the unit at its museum near Ravenna, Kentucky, along a former L&N route.

The 7067 was built in 1980 and was one of 44 C30-7s owned by the L&N.

At one time the 7067 wore the colors of Marshall University, which is located in Huntington.

CSX personnel worked with the L&N Historical Society to get the correct colors and lettering.

The 7067 is inoperable and CSX will arrange to move it to the Kentucky Steam facility this spring.

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.
