Transportation Company - Louisville New Albany & Corydon - Railroad



Company History: The LNAC opened their 8 mile line to Corydon, Indiana in 1883. Part of the route involved fording a stream – a practice not uncommon on steam powered logging lines. Presumably this was changed to a culvert before their 4-4-0 was replaced with a small GE diesel switcher. Freight car builder and lessor Evans bought the LNAC in 1980, using the railroad as a common carrier anchor for their extensive per diem and lease freight car fleet. Itel bought the LNAC from Evans in 1987, then the following year, sold the railroad to local investors but kept the LNAC reporting marks. The new owners adopted LNAL reporting marks. In 2006, the line was sold to their largest customer, Lucas Oil Products who have changed the name of the railroad to Lucas Oil Rail Line but with LNA&C lettering still making an honorary appearance.
