Rick Rode The Pocahontas Into Roanoke, 1966
Author: MartyBernard

In August my friend Rick Burn rode the N&W's Train 4, The Pocahontas, into Roanoke in August 1966. He also took several pictures around the yard which I will post soon.

1. At Christiansburg, VA.

2. At Walton, VA.

3. Downhill into Roanoke, VA.

4. At Roanoke, VA.


Enjoy Rick's ride,
Marty Bernard

Wow Marty, Rick Burns certainly got around and shows a lot skill too in all of it, having enjoyed his Milw and CGW shots this is all bonus good.
I'm especially interested in those GP's still flying the Maroon scheme in 1966, I was always curious as to how extensive and when the somewhat short lived blue scheme penetrated the original N&W lines runs.
Thanks for posting.

Mail, Express, small town depots, and the mountain scenery, Rick captured it all!
