Lockn’ Music Festival is just a couple months away and now is the time to think about purchasing your tickets and if you opt not to camp out at the festival book your rooms at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast. The dates are September 10-13. Check their website above for ticket prices (students and military discounts are available). If you attended The Woodstock Festival in August 1969, this is similar in many ways but better organized with food vendors, camping options and much more, but if you didn’t attend and you want to experience thousands of fans enjoying great music from some top name entertainers then you won’t want to miss Lockn’ Music Festival 2015.
At the Lockin’ Music Festival you can rent a tent or a space for your RV (check their website for pricing) or if you prefer to sleep in a comfortable bed, have a hot shower and enjoy our legendary breakfast each morning, all in air conditioned comfort then you may want to consider booking your room at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast in Downtown Lynchburg. Stay at least 4 consecutive nights while enjoying the Lockn’ Music Festival and get one room night free! The Lockn’ Music Festival is held in Nelson County and is only about 30 minutes north of Lynchburg.

Built in Roanoke in 1950, the J Class train was the most powerful steam locomotive ever built and arguably the best looking train ever built. Norfolk and Western only built 14 J Class passenger locomotives and train No. 611 was retired in 1959 and was housed in Roanoke’s Transportation Museum until 1981 when it was towed to Birmingham Alabama to be revitalized, the same year Norfolk Western merged with Southern Railway to become Norfolk Southern. Train No. 611 was used to pull excursions until 1994 when it was again retired and returned to the museum where train enthusiasts from around the word visited train No. 611. After years of fundraising the museum again decided to undertake a massive restoration costing about $3.5 million. Last year the train was towed to North Carolina for the restoration and now that the restoration is complete, Train No. 611 will be hauling passengers on a very limited basis.
