Remarks & Notes 
Much had changed in the previous 24 hours when this photograph was taken at Broad Street Station in Richmond, VA on May 1, 1971. The train, Amtrak Train No. 81, the "Silver Star," had been SCL No. 21 the previous day. The number of trains serving Richmond had been cut by half. That said, much appears as the day before. The power had come through from Washington on the RF&P and was being serviced for the trip south on SCL. The outbound SCL engine crew is boarding the same "battle scared" SCL E units that they had the day before. Platinum Mist and mixed consists were a few weeks, if not months off.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
