— —  The Southern Railway locomotive 630 got up a head of steam Thursday morning before leaving out at 8:40 a.m., for Grundy, Va., where it will pull a rail excursion train from Grundy, Va., to Ought-One, W.Va., near Devon.

Rail excursion enthusiasts lined the rails near Bluefield State College taking pictures as the train prepared to leave out and followed the train through Bluefield, Va., and on the NS mainline into McDowell County.
