An interesting obit appeared in today's Roanoke Times. Russell Franklin Bussey, 91, of Roanoke died on Sunday Jan. 11th. As a fireman for the N&W Ry Bussey fired the first run of the Powhatan Arrow. He met O. Winston Link and was a subject of Link's photography. After 40 years service he retired as an engineer on the Amtrak service on N&W.

The photo used in the obituary, I believe, is a Link photo.
