The Louisville & Nashville
The Louisville & Nashville Railroad Historical Society was organized in 1982 for
the purpose of collecting, organizing, preserving, and sharing information and
material relating to the L&N, its predecessors and its successors. At its
zenith, the L&N was a 6,000-mile railroad system that served 13 states. The
railroad was economically strong throughout its lifetime, operating both freight
and passenger trains in a manner that earned it the nickname, The Old Reliable.
The society is a non-profit educational organization, incorporated in the
Commonwealth of Kentucky, and functions strictly with volunteer members serving
The 2019 annual convention of the L&N Historical Society will be held in
Chattanooga, TN from Thursday, September 19 through Sunday, the 22nd. All
convention activities will be held on the premises of the Tennessee Valley
Railroad Museum. The photos shown here were taken at the 2009 L&NHS convention
in Chattanooga. There will also be a train ride from TVRM to Chickamauga, GA
and return, using TVRM passenger equipment. As always, the Saturday evening
main event is the annual banquet, also at TVRM.
As details are finalized, look to this site for more information. Until then,
please mark those dates on your calendar, and join us in Chattanooga!
