19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Train Coming Towards Me

Along the ancient Cumberland Valley division of the now CSX (Former L&N) lies a railroad line under the name of the Poorfork Branch. With very little railroad traffic, I struck on the opportunity to capture a coal train that was loading at one of the 2 remaining loadouts on its tracks. This shot I slipped a little too close to the tracks to be honest, but snapped the right photo at the right time. Worth it.
