A new director has climbed aboard to lead the L & N Depot.
Bill Helmbold has been on the job as executive director of the Friends of the L & N Depot and Historic Railpark for one week.
Helmbold and his wife lived in Bowling Green several years ago. He moved away with a job in the telecom industry but moved back last November of 2006.
This was the job that brought him out of retirement.
“When I saw the ad in the paper for this position, I thought well, this is something that’ll be really fun to do and my management background looked like it could be perfect for stepping into the position,” Helmbold said.
Helmbold is a train enthusiast and said he’s looking forward to expanding the Depot’s opportunities for the public, as well as building a museum.
