Great image, Mike Pierry! I’d love to see more, Bristol Line fanatic that I am. I’m also hoping to start on a model soon of the Saltbranch. Thanks for sharing

To illustrate Bob?s mention of the trip over to Saltville here is my photo
made that day of No. 11 with my wife, Maiddie
, adding a little interest. (She is a Saltville native.). I also have
images of the convention train itself filled with happy passengers (in a
gondola car as I remember).
