Att:Mike Perry,Jr.I am Sam E.Woolwine from Richmond,Va.I was born and raised in Abingdon and my daddy was James W.Woolwine who worked for the N&W fo 55 years retiring in 1958.Thought it might be of interest to you that he drove the last steam engine from Roanoke to Bristol.Front page of The Bristol Herald Courier had his picture and a nice article.I wish I could give you the exact date but I have turned this and other memorabilia of his railroad career over to The Transportation Museum in Roanoke.Great picture.Brought back memories of the Railroad Station,Thanks.Sam.(1953 I think.)

In front of the Bristol Union Station there are now nicely done
plantings --- in appropriate colors --- that recognize the two systems
that became today's NS. Train 25N is departing across State Street in
this recent view.
