Remarks & Notes 
The former B&O Charleston to Gilmer line, which changed owners numerous times before eventually being owned by Conrail now sits abandoned in the woods of central West Virginia, slowly being reclaimed by mother nature, although perhaps not for much longer. A newly developed shortline, referred to as the Charleston, Blue Creek, & Sanderson Railway in cooperation with Norfolk Southern have intentions of reopening this very line, along with the former Conrail/Penn Central/New York Central line from Blue Creek to Sanderson, WV. While no visual changes have been documented, I presume progress will start soon.

This is dedicated (with permission) to the skilled and gifted photographer - Chase Gunnoe - who regularly posts and is on staff with RP. I believe he deserves a gallery showing of his remarkable work. This is for you Chase! (More great photos to come!)
