Railroad museum coming to Corbin

January 23, 2015

The crossing signal and sign have arrived from Roanoke, Va. The Pullman car in Cincinnati, Ohio officially belongs to the Corbin Tourism Commission and work is ongoing to get the car to its new home. Corbin Tourism Director Maggy Kriebel is travelling to Bainbridge, Ga. Tuesday for a face-to-face meeting with city officials in an effort to convince them to gift a locomotive that once operated in Corbin.

“I’m going to ask them to let us bring L&N 2132 home,” Kriebel said

Like a steam locomotive after spinning the wheels a few times, the effort to make the new and improved Corbin Railroad Museum a reality is gaining traction and moving steadily toward the May 9 grand opening.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the tourism commission Kriebel announced that word is spreading throughout various organizations including, the L&N Railroad Historical Society, asking retired railroaders, the organizations and collectors to loan/donate artifacts and other railroad related items to the museum.
