“Sadie” Lehigh Valley Coal #126 at The Bluegrass Railroad Museum, Versailles KY.


This video is a compilation of two runs performed by #126 on Aug. 21 at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum in Versailles, KY. The round trip for the steam excursions included about 9 miles of the museums normal 11 mile round trip route. The trip was shortened to allow time for a runby at one of the thoroughbred farms the museum line passes through, while keeping ride time comfortable between bathroom visits, as there are currently no facilities on the museum excursion equipment. The trip is highlighted by the eastbound segments which included several 2%+ grades. #126 handled both westbound pusher and eastbound pulling segments alone, showing how stout she really is by getting the consist moving eastbound on grade from the western terminus.
