Even as the Star City suffers the losses, the future holds promise for a return of passenger rail service to Roanoke.

A newly-renovated train station would possibly house a museum featuring the works of Winston Link. But just a few weeks before he died- Link said he would give his blessing to the museum only on one condition - that the 12-18 steam locomotive become the centerpiece of the station. Keith Humphry has a look back at the 12-18 and its smaller, but historically-equal counterpart - the 6-11.

They were taking part in the sixth annual "Thousand Man March". The march is to honor the late Lucy Addison who helped create the area's first school for black children in 1886. Organizers say events like this are important in establishing a sense of community involvement and pride.

((HAROLD CANNADAY/ORGANIZER: I THINK THAT COMMUNITY AWARENESS AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION IS VERY IMPORTANT. YOU CAN'T WAIT UNTIL A PROBLEM ARISES AND TRY TO ARGUE ABOUT IT COLLECTIVELY BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT'S TOO LATE SO IF YOU GET TOGETHER AND ASSESS AND ESTABLISH A SENSE OF BROTHERHOOD THEN YOU CREATE AWARENESS THROUGH PARTICIPATION.))

Organizers say by choosing to honor a woman... the men are shown the importance females play in local history.
