Remarks & Notes 
July 6, 2000: We're at Wallsend, KY, just adjacent to Pineville (and separated by the Cumberland River). This was once a small L&N yard and terminal, fielding mine runs, locals, and the serving as the layover point for daily passenger trains 11 and 12 to Norton, VA and back. Pineville's riverside location made it subject to flooding, including a devastating incident on April 4, 1977, in which a floodwall built in 1952 was overwhelmed and 200 houses were destroyed or damaged. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers upgraded the floodwall in 1988, including this flood gate at the "south" (by railroad direction) at Wallsend. The train is an empty unit coal train headed for a load out on the Straight Creek Branch.
