Remarks & Notes 
Big Steam in Big Snow

American Coal Enterprises’ data collection of Chesapeake & Ohio 4-8-4 614’s performance occurred during most of the month of January, 1985. January in West Virginia meant that my friends and I didn’t see a lot of sun during our two trips to see the big 4-8-4 pull 100-car coal trains. Here 614 pulls a train of empties east through Thurmond, West Virginia in a driving snow storm. The saturated air provides no dissipation for the smoke and steam, causing almost complete obliteration of the scene.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, rainbows, and snow storms.
