Remarks & Notes 
Eastbound manifest Q302 is making track speed through Alderson, WV as it meets a westbound empty hopper train--also running at track speed. The ex-C&O Allegheny Sub was once entirely double track, but CTC allowed the reduction to a mix of single and double with crossovers at key points. With good dispatching, it's a very efficient way to run this heavy-haul piece of railroad.
