Remarks & Notes 
This is actually a "going away" shot with two GE ACs on the rear of a unit coal train. This stretch of railroad was first opened for regular service on April 15, 1891 as the Cumberland Valley Branch (soon to be Division) of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad. The scenic spot is the mid point of a reverse curve (8 degrees on either curve, at milepost CV 268.5--a number that denotes the distance from Louisville by rail) about two miles geographically west of the community of Olinger, VA.
