To counter that, there was the "C&O belt line" in Waynesboro, Va. that
went from the N&W's "Southbound Siding" and roughly followed along the
west bank of the river around to the C&O siding west of their station.
As with Waynesboro yard, both the C&O and N&W served quite a few
industries along the line.
