NS 2870         
The A&Y Job is returning from switching a cement plant located on the Battleground Lead, a remant of the old A&Y/Southern Greensboro-Mt. Airy line. The train is sitting under the NS Washington-Atlanta out of sight to the left. The boxcars in the background are being unloaded/loaded at TSI/Overland, a company that still did rail to truck freight forwarding as it was done during the LCL/Freight station era.

Tom Beckett General It would have been really sweet to have a Southern painted unit here with the Southern box cars. Still, a good view of retail railroading that is now a memory. Home page 04-16-2018 4/16/2018 4:30:09 AM
