R699 emerges from the south portal of Rich Patch Tunnel.


R699 prepares to cross Catawba Creek, passing the Forest Service road at the south end of New Castle, VA.

Here's a view of Q242 crossing the unfinished Virginia Highway 311 and Mason Creek area north of Salem, VA. The train is about to duck into Catawba Tunnel. Q242 never ran during operating sessions--this move was simply to return southbound Q241 to the north end staging yard at Connellsville.


Q242 pops out of Sandy Ridge Tunnel and crosses Catawba Creek.
