Am I correct that there was a switchback to get to Jenkin Jones?  Is there a detailed description of how the N&W operated there?  How many cars would fit on the switchback lead?  Lastly where was the tipple in relation to the company store?  I’ve see pictures with a track on the left (up hill) side of the building. 

Thanks in advance.
