Remarks & Notes 
Georgia summer is in full swing. Abundant sunshine, blue skies, and mimosa blooms. And boy, is it hot. CSX Q241 struggles upgrade past the Unknown Hero grave in the small town of Allatoona, GA, on the former L&N mainline behind L&N SD40-2 8008. This spot is where an unknown Confederate soldier was laid to rest after the battle of Allatoona Pass during the Civil War. His tombstone reads - "AN UNKNOWN HERO, He died for the Cause He thought was right."
