In 1957, O. Winston Link, a famed New York photographer came to Bristol, Tenn to the N&W railroad station to photograph and document the disappearing steam engines of the day. Haynes was a “hostler” at the train station in Bristol and had the pleasure of  help Mr. Link photograph these great steam engines. They would spend hours setting up the flash bulbs to light the shots as most of the photographs were done at night. Haynes had the distinct honor of being the cover photo for Mr. Link’s train photo book, “Steam, Steel and Stars.”
