Railways to heaven
April 30 marked the 40th anniversary of the end of an era; the last running of passenger trains on the L&N Railroad, one of the great classy American Railroads. On that date, several L&N routes ran their last trip. The most notable of these, The Pan American and The Hummingbird, service from Cincinnati to New Orleans. The few trains that remained were continued under Amtrak for different periods of time. Most were canceled before 1980.
