Remarks & Notes 
July 18, 1986: The morning fog is still laying low as an eastbound CSX coal train climbs upgrade on the NS Appalachia District at Irondale, VA. In the steam era, a short passing track was located here. Still earlier, iron ore from Wallins Ridge (to the left, out of sight in this shot) was loaded and then transported to the iron furnace in Big Stone Gap (hence the name, "Irondale"). There's a lot of unseen history here.
