Remarks & Notes 
Steam escapes from the traps on heavyweight L&N coach 2512 as its dark blue paint reflects the platform lights at Corbin on an August evening in 1963. This is southbound train 17, the nightly Cincinnati to Atlanta Flamingo. While the veteran coach was built by American Car and Foundry in 1929 as an 80-seat day coach, a 1940 rebuild that reduced seating to 58 (earlier, the seating had been reduced to 68) and solid L&N maintenance over the years has meant reliable service well into the 1960s. Inside, the Flamingo’s patrons enjoy comfortable reclining seats and air conditioning, to ward off the oppressive heat and humidity of this muggy Kentucky night.
