Norfolk Southern exhibit in LandrumPublished 5:10pm Monday, December 3, 2012
Norfolk Southern celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with a tour of an exhibit car across 10 states and 15 cities, including Landrum.
Landrum City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz said the car would roll into Landrum Thursday, Dec. 6. and be open to the public from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
“We’re looking forward to this piece of railroad history coming to our community,” he said. “We hope as many people as possible will come out to see it.”
A specific location is yet to be determined by Norfolk Southern but Wolochowicz said the railcar will sit off East Tucker Street on the west side of Hwy. 176. He said community members would be able to see the car from the road.
The exhibit car is a restored 1926 Pullman passenger car that was converted to a mobile museum in 1971. Over the course of the 41 years since its restoration, more than 1.5 million people have viewed the car.
