Remarks & Notes 
A westbound CSX empty hopper train passes the east siding switch at Burnsville, West Virginia, just before sunset in October 2004. The train is destined for a coal mine near Cowen, West Virginia, on the railroad's Cowen Subdivision (now the Appalachian & Ohio Railroad). The line typically sees two coal trains each way daily, plus an occasional local freight, and utilizes Direct Traffic Control (DTC), hence the hand-throw siding switch.
