Ex-wife of railroad photographer Winston Link accused of selling photos she stole

This report in the New York Times and this AP report say that the ex-wife of photographer O. Winston Link is accused of selling photographs she stole from him.

Winston Link's train photos are exciting, and include many scenes from here in Southwest Virginia, including the famous "Old Maud" scene, which is where the Virginia Creeper now ends below Whitetop. (The Virginia Creeper Trail is a recreation trail made from a former railroad line that runs 30 some miles from downtown Abingdon across the South Holston through Damascus to Whitetop Mountain at the North Carolina border. Just about every lawyer or client who comes to Abingdon tells me he or she went out on the Creeper Trail.)
