Jacksonville, Florida – May 15, 2018

Breaking news from CSX Transportation and the Kentucky Steam Heritage Corp., the Ravenna Rail Revival has been announced on the official CSX Facebook Page with details for a new steam-related restoration project in Ravenna, Kentucky!

The Kentucky Steam Heritage Corp., based out of Lexington, was formed in 2015 by a group of rail preservationists who intend to restore Chesapeake & Ohio Railway steam locomotive no. 2716. The group has leased the locomotive from the Kentucky Railway Museum of New Haven, Kentucky and plans to restore the engine by 2020.

With this recent announcement coming from CSX in partnership with Kentucky Steam, there’s no telling what the future has in store for the Ravenna Rail Revival press conference this Saturday. Kentucky steam intends to live stream the press conference on their respected social media outlets at 1:30 PM Eastern on Saturday, May 19th.
