This photo is of a westbound (#25 maybe) on the Kenova Division just west of Chattaroy, WV (which is about 5 miles or so west of Williamson, WV)  and Approaching Boarderland, WV.  The highway on the left is US 52 and Tug River is to the right in the photo.  This short siding also had a latch connected to the switch point that you had to depress to operate the switch.  This location is the only place I encounter this type of attachment on a switch.

I think this is at Middle Burning Creek east end Kermit

> Attached is an early image of N&W 611 in service. Four month old 611 cruises through light rain, just west of Williamson, WV with an eastbound, in September of 1950. I'm guessing that is what is now -US 52, with the Tug Fork River, just out of sight. Image is a "Blue Stamp" Rail Photo Service 5X7 by WG Fancher.
