A series of June thunderstorms wrecked havoc on CSX's southern coalfields of Logan county, leaving signals crushes and much of the mainline impassable until waters receded. Here, before the signals would be turned off and indefinitely 'dark', the unique C&O-style ABS signals at Rum Jct. display stop indications. These small 12' signals are some of the oldest (and last) of their kind on the entire system. Also note the relay cabin equipped with a phone link to the railroad's HE Dispatcher in Huntington, W.Va.
This is dedicated (with permission) to the skilled and gifted photographer - Chase Gunnoe - who regularly posts and is on staff with RP. I believe he deserves a gallery showcasing his remarkable photos. This is for you Chase! (More great photos to come!)
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
