No. 98 returned to Scottsville for the first time since 1977, for permanent display at the Scottsville Kentucky Train Depot thanks to help from the Allen County Historical Society and Friends of L & N Depot.
Track at the depot has been installed! A little more gravel has to be
placed around the ties, then we’ll arrange for the relocation of the
locomotive. Drop by and take a look. The 4-man team had about 100 feet
of track laid in 4 hours-amazing.
Join us at the Scottsville McDonald’s Tuesday October 10, 4pm-8pm. McDonald’s will donate a percentage of sales to the L&N Depot Restoration Project! Our popular Tshirts and sweatshirts will be available for sale. Come try McDonald’s new menu items.
The Friends of the L&N Depot are asking for your help in the 1st Annual L&N Depot: Christmas in Scottsville Event. We are asking you or your organization to put your imagination to work and decorate a tree to donate for display at the Washington Center.
During this time, the public will be able to purchase your donated tree and make a tax-deductible contribution to the restoration of the L&N Depot to preserve a piece of history in our community. This is the perfect opportunity to support our community, advertise your organization, and eliminate some of the holiday stress that comes with decorating!
