Remarks & Notes 
Back in 1976, urban sprawl had yet to envelope Fairfax Station, VA. It was still a largely rural area populated with dense forest and scenic farms. One would not recognize the location today, now populated with shopping centers and subdivisions. Northbound No. 6, the "Piedmont," climbs upgrade with two FP7s and three cars on July 11th.
