Jacksonville's Favorite Steam Locomotive Gets Preservation Grants

21 Oct 2013 7:40 AM | Jackson McQuigg (Administrator)
In good news for rail history buffs, Trains magazine and CSX joined forces to provide $20,000 in restoration funds for Atlantic Coast Line 1504, one of five remaining Coast Line steam locomotives.

The locomotive has been on display at the Prime Osborn Convention Center (the former Jacksonville Terminal) since the mid-1980s.
