It was the old main line. The new double-tracked main line was completed near Twin Branch about 1907. The old main line remained in service for a number of years The Twin Branch Branch left the main line near MP N-408 and rejoined the main line near MP N-409.37. The Twin Branch Branch served two spurs to the Twin Branch Mines and a spur to the Marytown tipple.

What is the history of the tunnel and several bridges along WV Route 7 between Davy and Roderfield?  Was this part of the old mainline?  If so, when was it relocated to it's present alignment?
