CSX N258 rolls through the dip of Bacon Creek as it heads south toward Etowah
One of a vanishing breed, a nice looking four axle on a major railroad. This one will soon depart with a southbound auto rack train.
Just like older humans, reduced to yard service. This one began on L&N. Note the builders plate intact and an older type headlight housing.
Looking so fresh in its "stealth" scheme this recent Erie grad is departing the east yard with the "Loyall Turn", "headin to the hollers".

Still looking good in a fairly fresh early paint scheme.
The former L&N steam era back shop in Corbin was still in use in 1984, but it would soon be razed and replaced by a modern shop located further south in the yard. The U25C was running its last mil... (more)
