Friday's Foto! Coal Train Through West Virginia

"Coal Train Through West Virginia"

I seem to be hooked on photographing trains here lately.  I think a lot of it is I have the time to take up my interest, photograph, and pay more attention to them.

The coal train is a symbol of my youth and days spent with my grandmother and grandfather in the small town of Marmet, WV.  My grandparents really didn't have much but they always had what they needed and were comfortable.

My brother and I weren't spoiled by them with lavish gifts, but with the treats of going to see them and seeing the trains.  A front porch faced the mainline of the B & O Railroad which provided quite a bit of fun for fun- sometimes even through the night- but, don't tell grandmother!
