Remarks & Notes 
Tools of the trade: Fifty years ago, Southern Railway was using first generation EMD F-units plus a few GP7s to lug coal eastward from its small yard at Appalachia, VA. Two steel bay window cabs can be seen on the right---punctuation marks that completed every coal train sentence then. This site would be vacated in September 1965 to make way for construction of the Westmoreland Coal Company Transloader. The transloader itself closed in 1995, and was razed in 2014. The 30-acre site is now vacant.
