Remarks & Notes 
A westbound NS man crests the hill at Big Cut, VA, a few miles west of Gate City, VA. The grade through this cut was roughed in before the Civil War by the Virginia & Kentucky Railroad---a line that was partially graded here and there, but never had any track laid. It would be about 1888 before the South Atlantic & Ohio would actually use the cut for railroad use. The pumpkins add a little fall color to the scene.
