At some time after WWII the Abingdon terminal was closed and the train
operated out of Bristol. If someone knows the date, I'd be very interested.
I believe a superheated W-2, the 771, was assigned to the Branch but after
the Abingdon engine terminal was closed and the trains operated over the
main line to Bristol, superheated class Ms were used, notably the 382, 429
and 495. There may have been others.

Subject: Abingdon coal wharf and engine house
I’ve been trying to determine if the coal wharf/trestle and engine house
just west of Pecan Street in Abingdon on the lead to the Abingdon branch we’re
still standing (and functioning??) in the mid-50s. The 1929 track map of
Abingdon (HS-F10182) shows both of these structures. Unfortunately, I could
find no photos or video footage of this particular spot.
Thanks in advance for the help.
