Remarks & Notes 
By 1990, it was getting rare to find Southern units still in the old paint scheme. GP30 2551 is the rear unit in a pusher set at Watkins, VA. Conductor George "Tootie Babe" Lewis is dropping off to make the cut (and relocate the EOT to the train). As soon as that's done, the Knoxville dispatcher will give the pusher a clear signal so they can head west and allow the waiting CSX train to follow.
