Coal traveled west to Williamson for river transfer along the Big Sandy, Kenova/ Ceredo, as well as marshalling in Portsmouth for Sandusky, Chicago and points west.

Subject: Coal Traffic through Farm
Hi all. The article on Farm in the last edition of The Arrow - along with the “High Noon” series - has done a good job describing how complex coal traffic and operations were.
Time for a naive question. The Farm article talks about eastbound coal going uphill toward Eckman, with the same crews bringing westbound coal back down to Farm and beyond.
It may have been stated in the Pocohantas Division “High Noon” article, but what was the purpose of loaded coal crossing paths? I assume different characteristics for different markets?
