Remarks & Notes 
A westbound empty hopper train bursts out of the former C&O Ft. Spring Tunnel. This bore was built in the late '40s to eliminate a long curve around the hill as the main line followed the Greenbrier River. Actually, the motivation behind digging this tunnel was to speed up passenger trains---particularly the still-born "Chessie."
