Spring in Virginia?

Coal empties westbound to West Virgina pass Amtack depot in Staunton, Virginia as the last snow of winter melts.
Boy I've stood on that bridge! Back in January of '96 there was 17 or 18 inches of snow on the ground and in June of '97. Pullman Restaurant good food! I used to have to travel to Waynesboro when I worked for Genicom from time to time and always stayed in Staunton. This was my hangout away from work. Thanks for the memories! I also remember meeting a guy who actually lived in the I guess used to be a tower in the background. He travelled a lot and actually stayed there on weekends. Had turned it into a one-bedroom apartment. If memory serves me correct after the railroad quit using it someone made it into their office like a real estate agent or something and this guy I met then took it over and turned it into an apartment.
sure thing, love that spot, that is an apt up in the upper floor of the tower, nice lower room, public restrooms, nice ones, The mill restaurant has some awesome ribs and BBQ. Thanks Bob!
