COEBURN, Va. — Don't you just love the smell of creosote in the morning? Trains contributor Tishia Boggs recorded this Herzog work train returning to Coeburn after a day of crosstie work on Norfolk Southern's Lower Clinch Valley District of the Pocahontas Division on Nov. 15, 2017. Railroads often take advantage of relatively mild autumn weather to complete track or maintenance work since it is easier on workers and the ground is not yet frozen.
