Remarks & Notes 
Things change slowly in the railroad business. The Interstate Railroad maintained a water tank in the east quadrant of the wye at Norton, Va for many years, but it was razed shortly after the railroad dieselized in early 1954. An NS mine run is easing off the back leg of the wye past the TWC control point "TANK"--an acknowledgement of what used to be there (as evidenced from the concrete footings still in place). A local coal company's Trackmobile is tied up on the right.

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