Over the course of three days between July 26-28, 2019, Kentucky Steam Heritage Corp., in conjunction with CSX, RJ Corman, Kentucky Railway Museum, and others, helped move C&O 2716 from its former home in New Haven, KY to its new home in Ravenna, KY.
During the first stage of the trip, a special event was put on at Lebanon Junction, a company photo shoot at the former L&N coal tower south of the junction on CSX’s Main Line Sub. In the vicinity was Q576 lead by CSX 3303. Under the guidance of Mr. Hendrickson, he guided the 3303 to a stop under the coal tower for a few quick shots. To the lucky few of us who got to witness this spectacle up close and personal, it felt almost unreal, especially in this day and age of PSR.
Although Mr. Hendrickson wasn’t the only one involved, a huge thank you goes out to him for being a key piece for this awesome event.
