Remarks & Notes 
On original W&W trackage, power pushes about 30 empties west from Gore to the sand mine under peak fall foliage color. The Winchester & Western tracks originally ran another 20 some miles to Wardensville, VA but was cut at the sand mine in 1944 after traffic and timber resources declined.
