Louisville KY

Unread post by Ben Higdon »

Does anyone happen to have a recommendation on any websites, books, or railfanning spots in regard to Louisville KY?
Its hard to find info or a book online because everything that comes up is about the L&N!
Thanks

I've never been there but I believe Clagg Tower is still open at one of the drawbridges and there are several public vantage points. Not sure how many trains pass by however or if it has any interlocking control beyond bridge tending. The most recent photo I found with a quick check (2015) shows it to be in good shape.

Sorry I can't suggest more!

If you have the time, drive the 30 miles over to Lagrange, Ky - ex L&N now CSXT Cinci to Louisville main goes right thru the middle of "downtown" - street running. Easy access, food & ice cream available.

L & N is now CSXT. Look for CSX train watching in Louisville. Should come up with something.
