The conductor of CSX H701 is lining the VACO Jct. switch for the C&O side. Shortly, this 8-car local will reverse caboose-first down the steep Vaco Branch before returning to the CSXT main at Deepwater. The once-a-week-local switches covered hoppers at Alloy via trackage rights with Watco's Kanawha River Railroad.
