Remarks & Notes 
The Louisville & Nashville Railroad was in the throes of an unprecedented volume of coal traffic in Eastern Kentucky when this shot was taken. A St. Paul, VA-bound 72-car unit train is just out of Loyall, and swinging through the junction at Baxter on the double-tracked Clover Fork Branch to Harlan Junction. The two lead SD40-2s are new reinforcements to the road's thin motive power roster--and the first new power to come in the Family Lines paint scheme. The new livery, while attractive, foretells the eventual demise of the L&N as a corporation. Also interesting is the rear unit--a leased N&W SD40.
