NS #4137 and #4408, hauling a loaded eastbound coal train, have just crested Elkhorn Grade and are crossing Cooper's Trestle in Coopers, WV on the afternoon of April 26, 2021. This coal will be bound for export at the ports of Norfolk, Virginia. Below the trestle is a church which was, according to town history, originally built by John Cooper, a coal mine owner and founder of Coopers, WV, to serve the white congregation in his town during the era of segregation and Jim Crow laws, prior to the Civil Rights Act. Out of the frame "across" the tracks is another church built to serve the African American congregation in the town that is twice the size of the "white church" and is still used today. Next to the church in the frame is the brick company store for the town, unused today.
