Today's Southern Crescent is the lineal descendant of the "Washington and Southwestern Vestibuled Limited," inaugurated in January, 1891, by the Richmond and Danville Railroad along the "Piedmont Air Line Route."

Crescent reminds me of how great a period of supreme artistry that Coltrane sustained during the last few years of his life.
