James River Line - Little Tunnel

My friend Chris Wiley has been teasing me for years with pictures he has taken from this point along the James River. Well, I finally found the spot for myself and settled in to wait for an eastbound to wind through the field and cross the bridge. I waited for hours and nothing ever came. I found out later from Harry Clark that there was a derailment at Saltpetre Cave that was blocking all traffic in this area. Just my luck!
After waiting forever at Little Tunnel, I drove on to Eagle Rock, where I met an eastbound slowly crawling through town.
I could have raced back to Horseshoe Bend to catch him there, but decided it wasn't worth it.
It was getting late, and I still had a ways to go to get to Ronceverte for Clint Foster's op session.
