Remarks & Notes 
At Andover, VA in 1968, extra board operator Jerry Head is busy copying a train order (by hand) being issued by the Knoxville dispatcher. Behind him is the status board, with all kinds of now interesting data. There were 10 F-units on hand (plus three GP7s). The Frisco Turn out at 11 AM had just 33 coal loads, no mtys and 4720 tons. Not a big train? Considering the grades of 1.7 to 1.9 percent he faced, not too bad.

just as the 1970s were a good era in virginia railroading, the 1950s and 1960s were just as colorful as the 1970s were. this a tribute to the days of simple railroading and why it served as a basis of what it is today.
