Hello Glenn,

Pocahontas Dispatcher eventually had the entire main line, including HQ 
Tower/CV Junction. At least the east end of the board to Welch was on 
display in the reading room of the Eastern Regional Coal Archives, 
upstairs in Craft Memorial Library, Bluefield, WV. If this is in regard 
to 1984, I believe by then, the "War Room" with the IMAX-like wall board 
may have been in service before they went to computer screens.
