Appears to be the westbound Blackford Turn taking water at Richlands on its way to Honaker. It would stop here later for water and coal on the return trip to Bluefield. A side note (to Dean Taylor), I cited Mr. Carlton Whitley ('48) as the source of an account of this run in a previous post--also contributing were enginemen Mr. John Disibbio ('39) and Mr. Robert Buckland ('39).

Good morning:

Attached is page 27 from RAILROAD MAGAZINE, July 1954.  Can anyone identify the depot shown in the upper photograph?

Best wishes and I hope everyone stays safe as Hurricane Florence passes,
