The Clinchfield railroad is a bridge road, like the
RF&P, between the North and South, with no yards or
interchanges to mark the beginning or end. Railroads
on either end would shuttle cars from one yard to the
other. Through trains did not occur regularly until
the merger of Seaboard and Chessie into CSX. This
SD45-2 now rests in the Elk Yard on the C&O in 1988.
