Time Draws Nigh on simmering Y6b 2-8-8-2 #2190, caught in an O. Winston  
Link classic on March 16, 1960.  In less than two months, it boiler  
would be as cold as the icicles clinging to the cliffs at the Ben Creek  
No. 1 operation of the Massey Coal Mining Co.  Originally the Gay  
Mining Co. at Timbar, it is fitting that this picture was taken at   
Massey Energy's "mother" property in the Tug Valley coalfields.
