Remarks & Notes 
The South Branch Valley's Chessie-painted GP9, no. 6240, leads a short Petersburg Turn northward along the railroad's namesake river shortly after departing Petersburg, West Virginia. The water level is low due to drought conditions that persisted from mid-August to mid-October. With only a few small customers in Petersburg, this end of the line only sees one or two trains per week.
