Not one, not two, but three C&O steamers heading south across the C&O bridge east of the power plant. 1949
Note that the "smoke" is white instead of black. This once again demonstrates that smoke is black during railfan excursions because the fireman is deliberately putting on a show for the cameras. Or maybe they are burning the "smokeless coal" from the New River Coal Field in Southern West Virginia that the C&O served.
