Remarks & Notes 
Engineer Sam Sturgill hasn't flipped his headlight switch back on as he brings Norton, VA-bound through freight 865 over the top of Emanuel Hill, a few miles east of Corbin. Lead unit 835 is internally an F7A, but in an F2A carbody. When the L&N's original 835 was destroyed in a derailment, the company purchased an old Atlantic Coast Line F2 carbody and transferred the prime mover, generator and other key components from the wrecked unit. As to what you call it (L&N said it was an F7)---it depends on what's more important to you: the package it's in, or what's inside.
