VERSAILLES, Ky. — The Bluegrass Railroad Museum will host Lehigh Valley Coal Co. No. 126, a 1931 Vulcan Iron Works product, over the next two weekends, Aug. 20 and 21 and 27 and 28. No. 126 is on hand to help the museum celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Owned by John and Barney Gramling, the little 0-6-0T was purchased and restored by the father and son team and now travels around the eastern U.S. visiting railroad museums.

Trains will depart from the museum's station in Versailles at 2 and 5 p.m. each day, making the two-hour round-trip to the eastern edge of Young's High Bridge, which is 1,659 feet long and 283 feet tall. Each trip will include a photo runby featuring the train crossing a wooden trestle.

More information is available online.
