For years, I got very few shots of cabs in action. In hindsight, it was a mistake. Little did I know then, the day would come when they were gone. Fortunately, I had the good sense on Jan. 15, 1978 to shoot this C&O caboose as it rounded a curve at Louisa, VA on an eastbound manifest.
i was born in virginia in 1972. when i think of railroads that shaped the commonwealth. i think of railroads like, SCL, N&W and southern. this is a tribute to those wonderful days gone by and for those who remember it well.
