JULY 2018: Outbound limestone loads roll to a stop at the Norfolk Southern interchange at Furnace Avenue in Rockwood, Tenn., on September 25, 2017. Tall trestles and a fleet of unique high-hood General Electric B23-7s are the attraction on this former Tennessee Central route, now operated by Lhoist Minerals. Justin Ross takes us on a tour of CSX and Norfolk Southern railroading around Richmond, Virginia, while Jeff Terry explains how four generations of railroaders unknowingly ensured the survival and restoration of Duluth & Northeastern No. 28. While the steel industry has retreated, Pittsburgh’s Union Railroad remains a vital connection for U.S. Steel.  All this and more in the July issue of Railfan & Railroad!

Rails Along Puget Sound

Rails Along Puget Sound

Steilacoom is a wonderful town for photography. Bridge 14 just north of town is a bizarre lift bridge, and just north of there is the Chambers Bay golf course and park that has numerous photo angles.
