The Leviathan, York's own Locomotive

Dave Kloke plans to build a replica of President Lincoln's funeral train for the 150th anniversary in 2015, according to Kloke Locomotive Works' web site.

The train traveled from Washington, D.C. to Springfield, Ill., and the plan is to recreate that trip for the anniversary.

Lincoln's funeral car passed through York County on the Northern Central Railway.

Steam Into History Inc. hopes to bring the funeral car to York County in two years and do a special event with it, said Robert Gotwols, chief operating officer for the organization.
