Here's a photo snapped at Ranoke located at Mile 112 on the Island Falls Subdivision August 2003. We're aboard FP7au 2001 the lead unit for the northbound Polar Bear Express (423) in the process of meeting the southbound Little Bear (622). 622 is a little long for the Ranoke siding which requires us to come to a stop while the 622 winds around us. As the last car enters the siding, our 2nd Engineman Merve takes a jog to the switch to line us up in order to continue our journey.
