Tracks Of Our Predecessors

By: Micah Turner


Description

Tracks Of Our Predecessors - After swapping power with an inbound R615 for Creech, the former Eastman power leads the loads back to Corbin after finishing up the overnight job. This drone shot from the middle of one of the old L&N double track steel girder bridges caught the 700 series leader in the early morning light; I had gotten lucky and caught them rolling through Dayhoit on our way to Kingsport.
