Mission Statement

The object and purpose of the Friends of L&N Depot, Inc. shall be to facilitate displays, exhibits and programming which preserve and present railroad history in the context of its impact locally and as a vital role in our nation’s social and economic development.

Description

The Friends of the L&N Depot, an all-volunteer, non-profit group was formed for purpose of acquiring authentic, historic railroad cars for display at the Bowling Green Louisville and Nashville Depot. The goal of the Friends of the L&N Depot is to provide a venue for tourism and local interest and for educational development, within a historic facility.

Within the museum, galleries of regional and national importance have been developed for public interest of cultural, historic and socioeconomic importance. Behind the museum lies 450 feet of track displaying an E8 Engine, a Railroad Post Office Car, the Duncan Hines Diner, the Towering Pine - a 1953 Pullman Sleeper, the 353 Presidential Office Car, and a Chessie Class C-27 caboose. The first cars were placed there in May 2002 and community volunteers have worked hard to restore them to their original splendor. The cars are available for guided tours as well as rental for small catered community meetings on the diner, birthday parties in the caboose and many other special functions.
