Has it really been this long since I have updated this thread?
I guess it actually has been a while since I have updated it.
Anyways, here are some new pics that I have taken in the past week or so.
First off, I had a little bit of time on my hands the other day. So, I got a shot of the manufacture's date on one of the rails.
Second off, we have Amtrak's Eastbound Cardinal heading toward Prince, WV and points east.
Third, we have a little switcher going westward after working one of the local industries here.
Fourth, we have westbound manifest freight symbol Q303-29 heading through town passing an eastbound coal train.
Fifth, former Chicago and Northwestern coal car on the same coal train.
Sixth, something you don't see every day of the week.
Pictures from Friday the 7th of August.
Amtrak train #50 passing through Marmet heading eastbound. This time he had Amtrak's Head Honcho's car on the rear end of the train.
Westbound manifest freight Q303-06 heads west with the 5375 running solo.
Eastbound N702-05 Virginia Power coal train gets framed up by two cameras that are rolling when he popped up.
Westbound T337-05 mty train heading back for the yards at Russell, Kentucky.
This westbound N667-07 mty Virginia Power train rounds the bend past the historic Ebenezer Chapel at the east end of town. Of Note - The church in the
picture that is below has sat in the exact same spot since it was built almost 200 years ago. This church is on the National Register of Historic
Places, hence the gates.
