Happy Veterans Day, Thanks to all vets for your service.

On Thursday June 22nd, en route the trip to the Kentucky Railway Museum to ride their afternoon train, a stop was made at the Historic Railpark and Train Museum in Bowling Green, KY. This museum is housed in the former Louisville and Nashville’s passenger station, and is the home of many historical railway artifacts and one of the region's largest model railroad displays. Opened in 1925, this depot is the third L&N passenger station that served Bowling Green. Outside of the museum are several ex-L&N passenger cars and other rolling stock and an EMD E8, built in 1951, painted in the L&N’s cream and blue passenger scheme.
