The area of WV that is on the CSX main line is more than just a "nick" - it
extends from Harpers Ferry, WV (at the crossing of the Potomac) to near
Cumberland, MD. That line passes through the Magnolia Cutoff, which has 4
tunnels close to each other.

Three other tunnels (east) between Point of Rocks, MD & Harpers Ferry, WV
need to be considered on the major east west route.

The map in the newspaper was not close to scale & did not do WV justice in
the distance of the CSX rails in WV.
