Remarks & Notes 
Pre-departure At Bristol

A lantern trail is left by the conductor walking train 201 as it prepares to depart the yard at Bristol, Virginia for Abingdon in the autumn of 1956. The locomotives and passenger equipment used on the 'Virginia Creeper' are kept in Bristol overnight, and each day the trains are run as extras over the Radford Division for the 15 miles to Abingdon, where the train departs at 7:30 a.m.

This 30 second exposure was taken as part of a Lerro Productions photo charter on the Strasburg Railroad. The engine is not the real 382, of course, as the engine was scrapped is 1958 (the 'jewelry' of which was given to O. Winston Link). For a day, 475 was dressed as her long-deceased sister before going in for her 1472 day inspection.
