Remarks & Notes 
On a beautiful June day the silence of Thurmond WV is broken by two east bound SD50-2's moving light. Thurmond was a classic boomtown. With the huge amounts of coal brought in from area mines, it had the largest revenue on the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. Having many coal barons among its patrons, Thurmond's banks were the richest in the state. Fifteen passenger trains a day came through town-its depot serving as many as 95,000 passenger's a year. The concrete coal tower and classic C&O station still remain along with the buildings pictured. This is definitely worth the drive and deserving of a return visit. Please note. Taken from a public RR Crossing with telephoto zoom lens. NOT standing in the gauge.
