Remarks & Notes 
A coal train loaded early in the morning at Powell Mountain Coal's mine at Mayflower, VA, near St. Charles, is easing along on NS trackage rights around a curve at Pocket. The makeshift retaining wall of old rails driven into the ground with crossties helps keeps the railroad from ending up in the adjoining highway. Three big Seaboard System SD50s are probably as good a test of stability of this arrangement as anything.
