Westbound coal empties round the bend at Alleghany, Va., silhouetting Chesapeake & Ohio's 'A' Cabin westbound on the mainline to Hinton. Soon, the 150-car empty train will enter Alleghany Tunnel, crossing into West Virginia and ultimately descend the namesake mountain into White Sulphur Springs.
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!)
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!)
