Remarks & Notes 
Scenes like this were still fairly common along former B&O lines in the 80's. In 1988, CSX's Mountain Sub still had active towers in Grafton, Hardman, Rowlesburg, Altamont, Keyser, and Cumberland. None of those towers are active today, Rowlesburg was the last one to close, in December 2010. Seated at D Tower's desk is operator Harold Fortney.
