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.
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.
