Remarks & Notes 
Late in the evening of September 30, 1981, an extra south blasts off from Elkhorn City, Kentucky—through Tunnel 1—and onto Pool Point Bridge. This is the beginning of a steady climb the next 34 miles to the summit at Sandy Ridge Tunnel—from 936 feet above sea level here to 1836 at Sandy Ridge. This is the Clinchfield---and this is the unadulterated essence of mountain railroading.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
