We ran across the southbound mixed train behind K2a 129 waiting at Luray on our way home from Roanoke. The mixed was in the hole for a northbound freight that sped through behind a Y6b. The soft light of an autumn afternoon compliments the front of the 4-8-2. The shot of the northbound didn't turn out so well.
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.
