Remarks & Notes 
There's nothing controversial, per say, in this photograph but the subject defines everything this part of the country is going to suffer over. Already in shambles, the towns, villages and communities deep into the Appalachian mountains, will see unprecedented negative posterity once coal declines even more and more each day. Sleepy, yet hard working communities will slowly disappear as the mining and RR jobs that depend on this commodity will also vanish. Take it as you will, I'm just taking the photograph. A slow motion blur can be interpreted as a slow moving and possibly doomed treasure we all call, "Black Diamonds". 77A takes empties towards the west only to be tied down somewhere not far from here.
