Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound CSX unit coal train has attained the top of the hill at Big Cut, VA (the west control point for the siding here is known as "Watkins"). The community gets its name from the fairly modest railroad cut that was dug before the Civil War for the never-built Virginia & Kentucky Railroad. It goes through the watershed divide between Troublesome Creek--a tributary of the Clinch River--and Little Moccasin Creek--a tributary of the North Fork of the Holston. Both, however, are ultimately in the Tennessee River basin.
