Remarks & Notes 
We're at East Stone Gap, VA, and this is the eastbound Belmont Unit Train from Appalachia to Duke Power's steam plant near Belmont, NC. The lead units are throttling up for the 1.7 percent climb to Jones' Cut, and then the top of the hill at Oreton. The bridge crosses the South Fork of Powell River. Southern's big SD45s looked rather cool running front end forward (which was how they were set up by EMD, per SR's specs).
