The Louisville & Nashville Railroad Historical Society is pleased to announce a limited run of 16 x 20 color
prints of Ron Flanary's new painting "Now Boarding for Cincinnati." This painting depicts L&N train 32
(the first section, with "Big Emma" number 1962 for motive power), the "Southland," at the passenger
station in Corbin, KY a week before Christmas 1948.
The scene is a cold winter afternoon with some light snow on the ground. Also included in the painting is
a glimpse of train 22, the connecting service to Louisville, and station switcher number 2132. That
engine was returned to Kentucky in 2016 after years of display in a park in Bainbridge, GA. It was
cosmetically restored to like-new appearance by the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission and
dedicated in 2017. The 2132 is one of three former L&N steam locomotives still in existence, and the
only one of 400 new locomotives built in the company's South Louisville Shops to survive. Appropriately,
the painting depicts 2132 doing what she was designed to do and standing adjacent to the very spot
where she is displayed today.
All prints are individually signed by the artist and printed on heavy fade-resistant photographic paper.
Each print is securely shipped in a USPS mailing tube via Priority Mail.
This is a limited run. Prints can be ordered directly from the L&NHS at a cost of $40. While the L&NHS
normally has a mailing cost option based on the total sales price for all items, these prints must be sent
separately in the USPS mailing tubes. The cost for mailing is $8.
