Remarks & Notes 
On a chilly evening along the former Virginian Railroad, the sound of an approaching coal drag permeates the air as No. U86 nears Kegley, W.Va. Soon, the train emerges from the woods and crosses massive Black Lick Trestle with all three engines wide-open to maintain trackspeed with their 160 car train in tow. Standing nearly 300' in the air and spanning 928', Black Lick Trestle remains as the highest trestle ever constructed on the former Virginian. Dramatic clouds loom above the scene, as the cold January day comes to a end.
