TVRM Welcomes Former L&N SD40 Number 1230 in Chattanooga

Newly arrived in Chattanooga – former L&N SD40 Number 1230 – Last owned by First Energy at their now closed Stratton, OH plant. This engine will be used by our Tyner Terminal Railway to switch the VW plant. Plans are to eventually restore this engine to one of its earlier L&N paint schemes.
