Remarks & Notes 
A northbound empty hopper train crosses the new bridge (opened in February 1986) linking the former L&N CV Subdivision main at Big Stone Gap with the former Southern Appalachia Division main across the Powell River valley. The track in the foreground is the old main line to Appalachia and Norton, recently removed. The quarry in the background ceased operations in the '50s.
