Remarks & Notes 
In late 1982, The South Branch Valley was busy improving its infrastructure, as witnessed by this tie train at McNeill, West Virginia, just south of the “trough”. The improvements were short-lived, because the line was virtually wiped out by severe flooding in 1985, and was not rebuilt until 1987. Without that rebuilding, it is doubtful that the Potomac Eagle operation would have ever existed.
