Remarks & Notes 
Ending of an era

Local job Y206-18 passes by Gillum's Service & Repair at the former location of Meads Station south of Ashland, KY, with the pusher on the rear shoving hard to help assist the empty train up the 1% grade at Summit. At this point, the pusher is nearly exactly 7 and a half miles from the junction with the Kanawha Subdivision at NC Cabin.

After a long run of imported trash from New Jersey, Tuesday will mark the last train to enter the waste transfer station at Big Run Landfill in Coalton, KY after numerous battles with nearby citizens due to the landfill's odor. Aside from the occasional local to service Kentucky Electric Steel, this will cease train service on the last remaining piece of Collis P. Huntington's former "Gateway to the West", the Lexington Subdivision.
