Waiting For The Clear

Virginia Division local, NP61, having just finished working a local tank farm, waits patiently for a clear signal to finish backing into Portlock Yard in Chesapeake, VA. NS-V17, on the left is passing, pulling a stack train west. NP61 is interesting in that its consists of an SD40-2 teamed up with a Road Slug. Look closely between the passing trains and you can see the caboose and an aspect of the CPL signal. There are a pair of CPL's at the yard limits, the last remaining on the NS "A" line within 140 miles. Picture taken Jan 16, 2011
