    Default American Freedom Train / Ross Rowland Rises Again?

    One of my relatives worked for the C&O railway and has a story about C&O 614, so I went on a history fishing expedition a while back. It's well known it ended up in the hands of Ross Rowland who used it for a number of purposes over the years and is now stored at Clifton Forge. Supposedly it is "stored serviceable", although obviously in need of current inspections and such.

    I e-mailed Ross years ago and never received a reply. No big deal.

    Today I got a LinkedIn invitation from him, and he is listed as Founder and CEO of the American Freedom Train Foundation (a project he did before owning C&O 614), and it says in the byline "American Freedom Train 2022-2026. Details soon."

    You now know all I know, a very interesting development to be sure. I wonder what he is planning.

    Sweet!!!
    I have been waiting for BLI to re-run the T1 locomotive. It would be amazing to see what Ross Rowland will do.
