Then and Now at Hudson


I caught wind of Norfolk Southern No. 8099, the Southern Railway Heritage unit, leading an empty grain train west out of Conway this past Monday.

The 8099 isn’t the most common H unit through my neck of the woods. The weather was less than ideal, so I went for a little “then and now” photo at Hudson.

I had shot the Virginian heritage unit there back in May and had used the old Pennsylvania Railroad station bay window as a prop.

Fast forward a few months and there is a chill in the air. It’s fall and even though I stood in the same spot as the May photo the station is gone, having been razed about a month ago.

After the zoom shot I took a wider view that shows that a few broken bricks and the radio antenna are all that remain of the structure.
