Remarks & Notes 
My favorite Southern Railway six-motor units were the SD24s. They were kind of overshadowed after the newer SD35s and SD45s started arriving, but these were the units that I identify with the "Rat Hole" in the early '60s. As six-motor power on the Southern increased, they found their way to the Appalachia Division, where they joined their newer EMD cousins in coal train service---particularly unit trains. The 2516 is shown in the "pit" at Andover in 1968. This is how they looked brand new---without a nose herald. I liked 'em.

just as the 1970s were a good era in virginia railroading, the 1950s and 1960s were just as colorful as the 1970s were. this a tribute to the days of simple railroading and why it served as a basis of what it is today.
