Remarks & Notes 
Remember the days when Southern Railway didn't mind if you found an open vestibule and opened the top half of the Dutch door to look out? This is eastbound 4501 smoking her way into Rural Retreat, VA on June 15, 1985. In this 300mm tele shot, take a look at all those heads, arms, feet or whatever kind of flesh sticking out down the side of the train. Sure, you would get pelted with stuff, particularly cinders, and the smoke would invade your lungs, but in the most simple of terms, it was fun. And, wasn't that the real objective?
