Remarks & Notes 
A big event, of sorts, was this 1965 NRHS special at my then-home town of Appalachia. The train was operated by the Old Smoky Chapter and made a round trip there from Knoxville. Even then, an FP7 was a rare bird at Appalachia, so it was kind of cool to photograph it just before all the traps were closed and buttoned up before the return to Tennessee. Behind the FP7 is an F3B, an F7A, and a steam generator car ("heater car" in Southern terminology).
