Remarks & Notes 
Classic Southern Railway: On August 10, 1974, a northbound CNO&TP Chattanooga-Cincinnati freight grooves the high speed crossover at Revilo, KY ("Oliver" spelled backwards) from number 1 track to number 2. A few miles ahead the train will face a double red stop at the north end of this stretch of two tracks. The manifest freight will cool its heels for two southbounds: number 151, the "Sparkplug," and number 229, the daily hotshot intermodal out of Cincinnati. The dispatcher in Somerset makes sure the hot trains get the "light" over the secondary runs. Why didn't I shoot this from the overhead bridge behind me? It didn't exist in 1974. You had to walk from the road to the tracks on a path through the trees and vegetation. Wonder who that guy was on the second unit giving me an enthusiastic wave?
