NS 5206 and CSX 5720 meet
Title:  NS 5206 and CSX 5720 meet
Description:  My plan here was to get a shot of the two trains meeting. The CSX train was moving fast and boy did I time it wrong. I took the shot with the nose behind the signal. I was very disappointed as this was the only time I saw a meet here. I added the shot here to show how things use to look in Hampton. The road in the foreground is county road 18. You can even see the old Southern sign that reads "Hampton" next to the SBD switcher (3rd unit back)
