October 19, 1987: I think Garland McKee was with us this day. Dave and Jill Oroszi, Rick Acton, and I'm not sure who else were chasing this CSX special that ran from Harlan to Frankfort. Kentucky Governor Martha Layne Collins was on board. This shot was taken at Artemus, KY, northbound on the CV Subdivision. I think this was my last shot, and I headed back to Virginia. The others continued the chase up the CC ("KY") Sub to Winchester, and maybe on to Frankfort.
CSX has extensive passenger operations that include office car specials, trips to major events like the Kentucky Derby, track geometry trains and the annual Santa Claus train over the northern section of the fallen flag Clinchfield Railroad.
