C&O Resignaling Marching Up The New River Sub
If you are looking to take an Amtrak trip I might recommend taking advantage of the dome car when it appears on the Cardinal in a week or two because it appears that CSX has really set its sights on re-signaling the New River Sub and its classic C&O signals. Fortunately I have managed to cover this section twice, but they were hardly under ideal conditions. I had hoped to get back next year, but I am not sure how much will be there to await me. Anyway the bad news is that the C&O towns of Prince and Thurmond will soon be sterilized and rendered useless for future generations of railfans so take a road trip out there while you can.
