Remarks & Notes 
On October 20, 1992 I snapped this wide angle shot of a former SCL unit beside the old steam-era coaling dock at the former Chesapeake & Ohio yard at Shelby, KY. It was demolished not long after this, so I'm glad I was able to get a good shot of it. Sure, I wish it had been a C&O unit in the foreground, but in railroad photography you take the subject you have, the available light and the scene and do the best you can to compose a memorable shot. You might get another chance...and the next time I was in Shelby, the coaling dock was gone.
