Remarks & Notes 
This image is one of twelve (12) in a double-page spread in the August 1985 issue of Trains Magazine. It was part of the cover story that month--"The CC&O Connection"---a piece I wrote on the history and operation of the Hagans Switchback--the only mainline switchback in the US (still in service today, too). Here, Extra 2720 South is nearly at the top of the double switchback. The old main line via Cumberland Gap and Middlesboro, KY swings around the curve on the upper level. Notice the front cab door propped upon with a broom, in deference to the heat and humidity of the day.
