When F Units Hauled Coal Trains

It might be hard to imagine now, but a classic A-B-A motive power set pulling a coal train was once a common sight.

Chesapeake & Ohio F7A No. 7075 is leading a westbound coal train through Kent on the Baltimore & Ohio in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

Not only is F units pulling coal trains gone but so is the passenger platform and station sign that can also be seen in this image.
