    Also spotted om the L&C is the 9548, a former Canadian National widecab awaiting repainting. The front door is open to provide a bit of air circulation for the crew on a hot day.

    Since this is Independence Day in the U.S.A., I thought I'd post a picture of an N Scale Bicentennial caboose I bought in 1976 when my country was 200 years old and I was young. I thought it was pretty neat when I got it and am still happy to have it, original bulky couplers and all. This model is about 2-1/2 Inches long.

    From the Wayback Machine (as crashton calls it ) is this low-rez Kodachrome scan from July 1980, probably taken with my Dad's old Nikon EL-2. We're at Benny Interlocking, just east of the tunnels at Gallitzin as two Conrail SD-45 helpers drop downgrade for another shove.

    As a result of CSX's many operational changes, only one freight train remains on a portion of the SAL main north of Columbia, SC and I was happy to get a shot of it yesterday. The lighting at this spot is perfect this time of year.

    Nice shot Sandpatch & a good catch. Nice view of those Geeps passing that Darth Vader signal. It looks like it is pulling that train up a hill or is that my old eyes playing tricks on me?

    Thank you. You're right - it is pulling up a hill. I wanted to include it in my composition and am glad it can be seen. The SAL main through central SC must have been interesting during the golden era of passenger service. The line was completed in the teens and was not built to a high standard with it's many curves and grades. To handle the tide of passenger trains, the SAL put in dozens of short passing sidings throughout its length. Long slow freights brought huge dispatching headaches. Most of the sidings are gone today, but the rolling and curvy right of way through the piney SC sandhills remains, if only for Amtrak's Silver Star at night and our lonely late afternoon weekday local.
