Remarks & Notes 
As the evening sun drops lower in the sky behind the mountains, an eastbound Southern Railway inspection train carrying the company's board of directors throttles up as it passes the Central Drive In Theater at Blackwood, VA, on the Interstate Railroad. The motive power is pretty unique--just-painted green E8s from the Southern Crescent pool. The train will travel overnight via Norton-Bluefield-Roanoke-Lynchburg (N&W), then Southern to DC.
