Remarks & Notes 
As the sun fades away, a chapter is coming to a close as CSX N057-23 (Stevenson,AL-Evansville,IN/EVWR)) enter the small farming town Stevenson, AL heading northbound after dumping the rich Illinois basin black diamond at TVA's Widows Creek fossil plant. With the stunning announce at the time TVA has made it clear that they're moving away from the fossil fuel, and moving into the future for clear burning energy to produce electricity. It is truly the signs of the times. 60 years ago Widows Creek was first brought online and produce 1.6-gigawatt of electricity for the general area. At one time their use to be four trains that serve the plant, but with a decommission date set for September 2015 the last load will be dumped, and burned before Unit-7, the last unit left in operation will be shutdown for the last time.
