Remarks & Notes 
After a quick crew change at the depot, former C&O through freight 91 continues toward Handley, Charleston and Huntington behind an incredible group of 12 locomotives. Within the mix are 11 powered units, one yard slug, and six each four-motor and six-motor units. A single ex-L&N U30C is second out. CSXT had only recently downgraded and essentially closed Hinton Yard. In the steam era, Hinton marked the change from flat-land engines to locomotives designed to cross the Alleghenies. Hudsons gave way to Greenbriers on passenger trains, and Kanawhas gave way to huge Alleghany class H-8 2-6-6-6s (front and rear) on eastbound tonnage coal trains.

An exclamation attributed to TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson, it is this eponymous expression of which certain images convey man and machine versus nature . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

Anything that grabs one's attention and holds it. These photos tell more than a story based on the sum of its parts, but create other stories.
