Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound coal drag behind Y6 2129 and class A 1216 pull upgrade near the summit of the Blue Ridge grade. I met several other railfans on this trip and one of them must have been Jerry Carson as his movies of this exact train and scene are on Green Frog's " Steam In The 50's ".

just as the 1970s were a good era in virginia railroading, the 1950s and 1960s were just as colorful as the 1970s were. this a tribute to the days of simple railroading and why it served as a basis of what it is today.
