NS 9706
Title:  NS 9706
Description:  NS 9706 leads a loaded coal train around a tight curve at Robinson, VA. It is about to cross over to Track 2 and cross the New River onto the Whitethorne District heading towards Roanoke. Note the Eastbound N&W CPLs still standing, the Westbound signals have been replaced with tri-lights. Also notice the pigeons sitting in the gague on Track 2, they were eatting spilled corn from a passing Grain train.

Description:  NS 8002 leads an empty coal hopper train out of the yard at Bluefield, VA towards the coal fields of West Virginia. This train had 2 AC units and 2 DC GEVOs on the head end, I assume the AC units will be taken off at Farm to be used as helpers, as is usually the case on the Pokey.

NS 8927
Title:  NS 8927
Description:  NS 8927 leads an interesting train off of the Tug Fork Branch in downtown Welch, WV. The train is waiting for the main line to clear up so the single locomotive can join the Pokey main at Hemphill. This is a local consisting of 15 covered hoppers. I have no idea what is in the hoppers, but I am guessing it is plastic pellets for an industry up the branch. Definetly not grain.

CSXT 898
Title:  CSXT 898
Description:  CSXT 898 working hard as it heads up the Gauley Branch towards the main line at Gauley. This train had 56 loaded coal hoppers and stalled just east of where I was standing. It took three attempts to make it up and over the trestle over the new river at Gauley. This was the first attempt. Afterwards, the train backed down the branch back to Gauley Bridge, WV where the locomotives detatched, and sanded various parts of the line before trying two more times, the third being successful. It was snowing quite heavily at the time and was about 17 degrees outside.

CSXT 898
Title:  CSXT 898
Description:  CSXT 898 and 779 lead 56 loaded coal hoppers off of the Gauley Branch over the New River and onto the CSX ex-C&O Mainline at Gauley Bridge, WV. The Gauley Branch is a lightly used branch with a very steep grade from the town of Gauley Bridge up and over the New River. These 2 AC units were struggling and it took three attempts to make it over the bridge. The first attempt the train stalled short of the trestle, then the units uncoupled, ran light and sanded various parts of the line and then tried 2 more times, this being the successful one. They could really have used either helpers or another unit on the head end. It was snowing pretty heavily and the temperature was about 17 degrees this day.
