Deep in the hills of Cabin Creek, a pair of mainline CSX motors runaround coal empties at Leewood Siding before spotting up underneath the Tom's Fork loadout. The CSX crew will work with the loadout operator to verify the train count before the first set of empties are loaded after daybreak. This ritual has taken place for many decades in rural West Virginia.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
This is dedicated (with permission) to the skilled and gifted photographer - Chase Gunnoe - who regularly posts and is on staff with RP. I believe he deserves a gallery showcasing his remarkable photos. This is for you Chase! (More great photos to come!)
