Remarks & Notes 
When available space for locomotives got especially tight at Andover, VA, the turntable would be lined up with the lead so units could be spotted there. Additional track would be built later, since it wasn't unlikely that as many as 25 units would be crammed into the small engine terminal at times. This facility belonged to the coal-hauling short line Interstate. Their steam roster included a pair of USRA compound 2-8-8-2s, so the turntable had to be of sufficient length to handle the big engines. Ironically, the turntable structure survives. After it was removed, a local coal company flipped it over and converted it for use as an access bridge across Callahan Creek, not far from this spot at Andover.
