Remarks & Notes 
Since the statute of limitations has expired, I'll admit my vantage point for this shot was a Southern Railway hopper (No, I wouldn't do that today--but I was 20 years old, and a little foolish at times.). This is L&N train 864 making a pick-up of interchange traffic from the Interstate Railroad (mostly empty coal hoppers brought over from the Clinchfield connection at Miller Yard). This is obviously a Tuesday, since power out of Norton those days included both the inbound power from the previous day's 865 (two U25Cs and an RS-3), and this morning's 855 (RS-3, F7B and an SD35). Train 855 didn't operate on Sunday, and train 856 didn't operate on Monday. Otherwise, four daily through freights (plus several extras) plied this line back then.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
