Beautiful shot of a railroad that didn't get enough attention.

I enjoy seeing photos of railroads in the 1940's and '50's, it's kind of like a chance to experience a "time machine" and see life in the heyday of America's railroad boom. Nice photo submission Roger, love those classic EMD F's. One issue I've always had about photos from this era, almost every photo I see from the '40's and 50's, the locomotives always seem to be running with their headlights off, and I wonder if anyone knows why?

That was the way with trains running with no headlights on, until the 1950s when Diesel operation bought about the change to run with headlights on.

I took many pictures at this exact same location during end of the L&N era (1970's-early 1980's). The old tunnel just across the tracks and just west/north of the photographer's location is still there as far as I know. Thanks for sharing Roger. Last time I was there, the place was pretty much overgrown. Great shot!

I didn't even recognize it. Yes I shot several pictures there in 2005 and you are right Terry. Everything is all grown up along the right of way. In another 20 years or so CSX should be able to start harvesting their rights of way and making a fortune.
