a few days after the electric traction gang refurbished the flagpole as a memorial to the Sept 11 incidents. Bill is a radio technician for Amtrak and stationed in the old railway express building next door to the station. Bill has been here since 1982 and never saw a flag on this pole in that time and says some of the older guys there say there wasn't one here even back into the early 70's and late 60's. The story of this restoration was submitted to the company employee newspaper and was published in the Nov/Dec issue on page #5 along with this picture.

The 19th century building in the less than flattering Amtrak gray paint.

This building now houses the archives of the PRRT&HS. They rebuilt the tower that was removed before Amtrak became the landlord. The PRRT&HS also restored the building to its former splendor.

The steam locomotive on Track 1--Chicago, Burlington, & Quincy, #710--is a 4-6-0, identified on the driver cylinders as a "K4 Havelock, June 1901." It was given a cosmetic rebuild by Shop Services, Inc. of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa in January 1991 when it was moved from its former display location in Pioneers Park on the west side of Lincoln to this current location. The freight cars and caboose were added to the display at that same time when it was located here.

The brick sculpture on the north wall of the depot is titled "Iron Horse Legacy: Nebraska Landscape 1871-1872." The sculptor is Jay Tschetter, and the work is (c) 1999 by Jay, and Yankee Hill Brick, a local brick yard/foundry. The work is approximately 12 ' x 45' overall.

  Lynchburg VA
has two Amtrak stations. One is on the former Southern Railway mainline, the other is on the former N&W line. The Southern Railway station is called Kemper Street Station, and is still in use to this day. The N&W depot (located at Woodall Road) was used for the Hilltopper and Mountaineer back in the 1970s. However, Amtrak does not stop there anymore. The building is now used for offices
by the NS.

Pictured here is the Kemper Street Station. Please visit the Kemper Street Station section of the
Blue Ridge Chapter, NRHS website for more photos and information.
