Tracks in Harlan, Kentucky
CSX track in Harlan, Kentucky, October 23, 1992. Harlan is an important junction on CSX's ex-Louisville & Nashville coal-hauling lines in eastern Kentucky and western Virginia. The photograph captures the close relationship between the railroad and its surroundings that is typical of the Appalachian region. A public street parallels the track at left, and businesses are packed in tightly on both sides.
