Lincoln Funeral Train

In 2018, Stone Gables Estate purchased the only replica of the Lincoln Funeral Car, built by Dave Kloke. The “United States” rail car is a 2015 replica of the first private rail car originally built for President Lincoln in 1865. Lincoln was scheduled to inspect the new coach on April 15, 1865, the day after he and Mary Todd attended Ford’s Theatre, but he never saw the car. Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, issued orders for the car to be used to carry Lincoln’s body and that of his son, Willie, who died in 1862. Both were carried back to Springfield, Illinois.
