Published on Feb 5, 2016
The Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation (KSHCO) is excited to announce the campaign to bring former C&O steam locomotive #2716 back to life. Once refurbished, the engine will be one of the most powerful steam locomotives in the world and will be the only operating survivor of its kind. Our objective is to restore the locomotive to operation by the year 2020. You can help 2716's New Lease on Steam by volunteering, donating to the cause, or by simply spreading the word!
