Remarks & Notes 
Seaboard Air Line No. 22, "The Silver Star", is running about 4 hours late on this March 1965 morning. It's now 11:40am. We are just north of Raleigh, NC and E7A 3018 plus two other E7's are on the west main line enroute Richmond, thence Washington, and New York. The track in the foreground is the "secondary" east main track and the severe grade separation is to accommodate heavier northbound trains and offers multiple meeting and passing options as the 6.3 mile double track is linked by a single crossover at Millbrook, NC. The grade separations will become equal and parallel a couple of miles beyond. This photo is from the first set of slides I ever took with a 35mm camera. It was a Sears "Tower" brand, fixed lens, and virtually no exposure or shutter speed options. I rode my bicycle about 6 miles to get this photo as I had just turned 16 years old and did not yet have my drivers license.
