Remarks & Notes 
Extra 188 North is putting away its train of empty hoppers in the storage tracks at Harlan Junction on a February afternoon in 1968. The four RS3s are certainly classic, but wooden cupola caboose 128--which many L&N fans termed a "Little Woody"--is notable for still being in service this late date. South Louisville Shops was then cranking out many new steel bay window cabs to update the L&N's fleet, but in a few places, the old cabs hung on a little longer. While all the RS3s went to scrap, ironically the 128 survived. It was assigned to the Corbin wrecker outfit for a few years, and then purchased by a private individual. It was restored and can be seen today in Corbin.
