A man is in jail and a stolen 350-pound bell was returned to an 1890 coal-fired steam engine train on Tuesday. Local 8 Now reports the bell was stolen last summer in Knox County. Deputies say it was recently found among other stolen items in 54-year-old Gary Valentine's garage. Three Rivers Rambler says No. 154 ran freight operations in Knoxville in the early 1900's. The engine was stored in a Knoxville park for 50 years before being restored by the Three Rivers Rambler train ride. The train is believed to be one of the oldest operating steam engines in the United States. According to Local 8 Now, it has been in service on the Three Rivers Rambler for about four years.
