Alexandria, Virginia—May 20, 1985.

It was 30 years ago this morning that I exposed this black & white photo of a northward Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac piggyback train at Alexandria, Virginia.

RF&P was among the railroads melded into the CSX system.

Exposed on Kodak black & white film with a Leica 3A fitted with an old 50mm Elmar with non-standard f stop setting. Among the other challenges of using this lens was its lack of modern color coatings. However, it was a very sharp piece of glass.
