Next month the Green Cove Station on the Virginia Creeper Trail will 
be 100 years old. It is the only existing station of the former 
Abingdon Branch of the Norfolk and Western Railroad. It is now a 
visitor's center and small museum with some of Winston Link's prints 
and other artifacts of the steam era.

I took several pictures in March 1977 of the last few runs of the 
Virginia Creeper, but did not record names and dates. I am trying to 
find the names of the engineers and brakemen, the numbers of the 
engines, and the dates of each of the last six runs on the Abingdon 
Branch. These are diesel engines and there was no passenger service 
at that time.

If you can help me with this information or direct me to someone who 
has it, I would appreciate it.  Thanks.

Mike Smith
