Taking empties up Coal River

210 heads for the mines on the Coal River sub on a dingy winter day. This timber lined tunnel under Pennicle Rock in Boone County has seen just about everything from 2-8-0s to SD70ACes.
Nice angle and framing. Who says that the east doesn't have interesting scenery? Only thing keeping this one from being a "10" in my book is the light.
Thanks. Not much I could do with the overcast day. Having a new camera has me wanting to shoot more these days, so I plan to head back there when the sun is shining. Hope I don' have to wait til spring:)
Ditto Jon, the spring would be a nice time, just when the trees start to bud, with that soft green color.
