Three Trains Crossing

On a pretty summer Sunday take a break from the noisy news of the day to click on this link to view a colorized (circa 1940’s) shot of what was billed as, “the only point in the world where three trunk line trains may cross each other at the same time, and over their separate tracks.”

Depicted in a wonderful old postcard, one this scribbler remembers seeing as a child, is a scene of three trains, on three different levels, passing over the same point in Shockoe Bottom. To see more of these charming postcards visit the VCU Special Collection of vintage postcards.
