It could be, in fact it is. Here I present a vintage photo of the Morris Fork mine run switching out the truck dumps at Union Carbide’s mine on the Hitop branch. Coal is still king on this 34 mile branch, providing a livelihood not only to these railroaders, but also to many hundreds of miners throughout Kanawha county, and many other businesses that support these mines.

I have been a railfan since the age of 6, and a modeler since the age of fourteen. This is my first fully (well not quite) completed model railroad. I fell in love with trains early in life, ride them when I can, have volunteered on many steam fan trips and have ridden many more steam excursion trips, have belonged to several model rr clubs, and did a stint as a brakeman/conductor on a midwest regional railroad. My layout was published in Model Railroader magazine in 2016. I hope all of you enjoy the ride here on my site! View all posts by stevecampbell60
