I believe there were 42 locomotives that pulled the Lincoln Funeral Train during the course of its journey. I am at work now so don't have references but I believe the old Nashville did pull the train further down the line than when leaving DC - and pretty sure it was in Ohio like Roger said. That particular locomotive is memorable in that there is a great photo of it decked out in mourning decoration (see below).
