Remarks & Notes 
After quickly picking up 12 loads and spotting 12 empties at the Blackwood No. 1 loader, located along the ex-Interstate Railroad's Appalachia-Norton main, U53 dashes towards Andover Yard at a location just west of Blackwood. Dad, who had 42 years service on the Interstate when he retired in 1978, commented that it was the first time he'd seen a crew move as fast as the old Interstate crews did.
