Shed installed at Lynchburg park to protect train cars

imagesLYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) _ Lynchburg officials have installed a cover shed at a city park to protect three old train cars. Director of parks and recreation Kay Frazier tells The News & Advance that the shed is part of a series of improvements at Riverside Park. Other improvements include upgrades to trails and pedestrian amenities. The Chesapeake & Ohio steam engine, Southern Railway passenger coach and Norfolk & Southern caboose have been at the park since 1962. The cars were donated to the city. Tom Ledford is a retired director of the city’s museum system. He says the steam engine was built shortly after World War II. The caboose is more than a century old and the passenger coach dates back to 1926.
