Remarks & Notes 
Southbound Southern No. 5, the "Piedmont," was rounding a curve at Rockfish, VA on October 18, 1975, led by FP7 No. 6134. Normally, No. 5 rated four F units, but on this day was getting along with three. The TOFC flats that made up the rear of the train are out of sight behind the hill.
