Remarks & Notes 
This train was at the end of my August 1958 visit to Roanoke. It had rained quite hard that afternoon but then the sun broke through dramatically. Two Y6s pull on an eastbound freight and the lead engine has an obvious steam leak.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

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.
