LINCOLN FUNERAL LOCOMOTIVE
Replica of Lincoln funeral locomotive won't stop in Columbus during Ohio visit this month

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 18, 2014 6:04 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


A full-size replica of a steam locomotive that pulled Abraham Lincoln's funeral car won't stop at the Ohio Statehouse as scheduled next week.

The Leviathan 63 engine is part of the 2015 Lincoln Funeral Train project that will re-enact the president's final journey from Washington D.C. to Springfield, Illinois.

A spokeswoman for the nonprofit group planning the anniversary event says the Columbus display was cancelled because of late-arriving funding and insufficient time to get permits for rail and road transport.

The locomotive is at the Lake Shore Railway Association in Wellington in northeast Ohio this weekend.

The visits are raising funds to complete the funeral car that will travel with the locomotive to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's assassination. The train will pass through seven states, including Ohio.
