Russell-Cumberland daily manifest, CSX Q316 creeps north along the Christmas decorated Main Street of St. Marys, east on the former B&O Ohio River Subdivision to New Martinsville. It's 9:00 PM on the dot as the healthy sized manifest train makes its daily nocturnal trek along the Ohio River Subdivision from Parkersburg to New Martinsville, and eventually east to Grafton. Very little daylight taffic operates through St. Marys, especially in the winter months where daylight hours are even shorter. Q316's counterpart, Q317 will likely parade southbound through Main Street before sunrise, making its journey south along the Ohio River to Parkersburg.
