Coming out of the morning mist as it nears the West Virginia border
Dull day, bright trailing unit on this ballast train
Crossing the Potomac River from West Virginia to Maryland at dusk
37Q is on the way as the day is almost done
Waiting on a crew to head east, NS 350 greets the early morning sun in the yard at Selma.
Crossing the Jeremys Run trestle
Shortly after the dawn's light made it to this valley
Running through the former N&W's "Land of Plenty"
Visitor from afar...
No longer a controlled point (and no signals); the "Ashby" name has been moved to the south end of double track just north of Riverton Junction
Construction work for the new bridge and alignment for U.S. highway 340 as it also crosses Compton Creek
349 prepares to leave double track as it enters Cary, NC.
NS 846 carries coal through Garner, NC.
Not the proverbial 'horse of a different color', but certainly looks like a horse in sheep's clothing on the nose of the lead unit!
Thanks to the folks at Enola that went to the trouble to put the proper unit on the point of this amply-powered 37Q (Reading heritage unit bringing up the rear)
