Buster Keaton's "The General" will be presented at the historic Tivoli Theater on Saturday evening, August 23 at 7:30pm.  This is the classic 1926 silent film which is now considered by critics to be one of the greatest movies ever made.  The icing on the cake for this event will be accompaniment provided (as it was originally intended) by the Tivoli's "Mighty" Wurlitzer Organ  played by renowed organist Ken Double, president of the American Theatre Organ Society.  See here for tickets, or buy them up until showtime at the box office on Saturday, August 23.

Cincinnati 630

 

During the month of May, Locomotive #630 headed out with 21st Century Steam trips on Norfolk Southern to Cincinnati, Ohio (trips originated across the river in Ludlow, KY) and later Lexington, Kentucky.  This gave thousands of bystanders the opportunity to witness steam as it was on the Cincinnati-owned Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific line!
