Thorn Among Roses

Actually, maybe it should be "Classic Among Moderns"? Either way, this lone SD50 held the middle of a powerful lashup that included two ES44DC's, a Dash 8, an SD70MAc and an AC44CW. This NB is about to thread the needle in the classic tunnel at Morley, TN.
Must be a great place to shoot trains.

It's an impressive area with the line ducking into tunnels, over trestles and through deep rock cuts. The tracks parallel US 25 for quite a ways and in some places you'd almost swear you were out West in the mountains instead of in Tennessee.
