Remarks & Notes 
It was early evening on August 13, 1985 and a late eastbound C&O manifest No. 794 was banging across the RF&P main line at Doswell, VA with lone B30-7 No. 8280 for power. No. 794 usually rated two, three or more units. This is the only occasion I saw it with one. Usually, No. 794 made a mid-afternoon appearance in Doswell. HN Tower was built to C&O specifications, but was owned by RF&P and faced the RF&P main line. At this point it was boarded up, but maintained to house the signal control apparatus for RF&P's HN interlocking.
