I understand the CPL at Lee was blown over during the windstorm last week.

I lost a long-time friend yesterday, one I have valued for over 40+ years.

On US 460 E yesterday, returning from the Archives, I passed a large group of white NS vehicles at the west end of double track at Appomattox. Much to my horror, they had removed the beautiful, stately twin-masted CPL that had protected that control point for, well, forever. Of all the N&W CPLs, that one meant the most to me. I checked it regularly in my travels and photgraphed it a number of times. It stood in such a way that other than in the dead of winter, the sun set behind it. Lovely.
