Photos Past: The L&N Humming Bird

At one time the Louisville and Nashville Railroad operated a beautiful, but affordable passenger train between New Orleans and Cincinnati named the Humming Bird. This famous scene depicts the train as she is crossing the Biloxi Bay in Mississippi. Similar to the Illinois Central photo from a few posts ago, this image also was widespread, and in my view, became the “image” of the railroad.
