Remarks & Notes 
The red bud is blooming in this portrait of a northbound NRHS special crossing the former Clinchfield Railroad Copper Creek Viaduct. The propulsion chores are handled today by the "Final Four" F-units--all ex-Clinchfield (although the B-units began as NC&StL and L&N units before they came to the CRR in the '60s). For an all too brief time, these units saw special service on excursions, specials and office car trains under Seaboard System colors and later CSX Transportation. While they're all still in existence, but scattered here and there, the quartet never looked better than on this spring morning in 1986. There aren't too many things in diesel-era railroading prettier than a classic matched set of cab units.
