Remarks & Notes 
On a hazy summer morning, RF&P Train No. 276 gets underway from Acca Yard for its run to Potomac Yard. When their days in passenger service had ended, the RF&P used its E8 diesels in freight service. Here an E8 leads two GP7's and a GP40 on the northbound freight.

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.
