Thumbs up Steam is alive and well

Looking at today's homepage at RP.net shows several new steam shots added today. I think that is exciting for railfans to know that the opportunities to see live steam has never been better. A big thanks to all the organizations and their volunteers who make this possible. Also kudos to the railroads who have chosen to promote steam and to be proud of their heritage!

I wouldnt say that, but it's better than it's been since the mid 90's when NS shut it down, and CSX stopped allowing steam excursions (and excursions in general).

I'm not sure these are the only images from that location. Since I've never been there, can someone help me out here?

A quick search on Google Maps does not come up with a Devon, Va. or a Devon, W. Va. I've been on third for eight straight days, so no more looking around the net to find it this morning.

Type in Woodman, Ky, and go South a little bit. Devon only exists on railroad paperwork, and in the minds of those who've been there.
