Remarks & Notes 
The CSXT CV Sub runs 118 miles south out of Corbin, KY, to Pennington Gap, VA. Not alot runs out here normally except the Brice Limestone trains and a few coal trains that are loaded around the mines in the area. A C633 loading crew is on their 2nd cut of cars being loaded at the Creech Mine. The loadout is on the Merna Spur, which comes off the CV Main at the Glidden siding at MP 248, about 10 miles south of Loyall. The crew has already loaded the 1st half of the train and set it to the main at Glidden. Now they have the 2nd set of empties, off the siding, shoved up into the loader to start flood loading. The mine at Mary Helen is operated by Lexington Coal Company who looks like maybe reopened this mine in 2017 after it being idle since 2012? The Mary Helen Coal Co. opened the Coalgood mines and company town in 1919. One thing that saved this cool old company store is that the post office was in it until 2004. Over 100 years of mining has gone here. What a cool place!
