L&N - "The Old Reliable"
This nickname was more than just the familiar slogan on the sides of numerous L&N freight cars. This affectionate term, in use since about the 1880s, was tied to the character of this conservative, yet profitable, railroad for many years. Through the years, L&N was known for its many diverse elements, a few of which are listed here: long strings of red hoppers hauling bituminous coal out of Eastern and Western Kentucky; the famous country ham breakfast served in its dining cars; fast "TOTE" (piggyback) trains; and blue and cream E-units on the point of such streamliners as the GEORGIAN and the HUMMING BIRD. From the railroad's charter granted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky on March 5, 1850, to the first train between its namesake cities in October 1859, to the disappearance of the company into Seaboard System in January 1983, L&N played a vital and unforgettable role in the history and economic development of the South.
