The 2015 Lincoln Funeral Coalition now has a website announcing plans for a 150th anniversary re-enactment of Lincoln’s funeral and burial in Springfield in May 2015. Their website is lincolnfuneraltrain.org. Also, Dave Kloke of the Historic Railroad Equipment Association is accepting funds for a full-scale reconstruction of the Lincoln Funeral Car with plans to re-enact the funeral from Washington to Springfield on the original route in April-May 2015.
