    Emerging from the woods and into the sunshine the 1200 crosses Goldsborough Creek on a frosty morning nearing its destination at Mill 3. Would'a been perfect if it weren't for the darn shadow!

    On the wind-up with the mid day log train to Mill 5, the 1200 is pulling a train of empty log cars and two ballast loads. The 1201 will bring up the rear as the pusher.
