It seems every time I visited Quinnimont, WV it was hot and steamy, even in May. On May 20, 1979 the turnaround job from Raleigh had dropped its loads and was heading back home with a train of empties, led by GP7 No. 5873.
i was born in virginia in 1972. when i think of railroads that shaped the commonwealth. i think of railroads like, SCL, N&W and southern. this is a tribute to those wonderful days gone by and for those who remember it well.
