Where There's Smoke...

For the L&N Historical Society's 2019 convention in Chattanooga, TN, Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum arranged to have their Southern 2-8-2 4501 cosmetically altered and lettered as an L&N locomotive. The changes included fitting an L&N-style headlight, number plate, and whistle to the locomotive, as well as blacking out the white trim on the running boards. On the morning of Sunday, September 22, 2019, the "1593" is seen making a dramatic arrival into TVRM's Grand Junction station. The locomotive would spend the day hauling TVRM's Missionary Ridge Local excursions.
