Kenova, West Virginia is one busy town when it comes to railroading. CSX Transportation's ex C&O mainline runs through here, hosting lots of coal trains along with mixed freight, grain trains and light power moves between yards at Huntington, West Virginia and Russell, Kentucky.
Crossing over the CSXT tracks, it's own secondary tracks, The Ohio River, and much of Kenova on a massive bridge is Norfolk Southern's Pocahontas Division mainline hosting numerous trains including coal, manifest, intermodal, grain, and automotive. Kenova also hosts a small yard which is base for numerous NS local jobs in the area. Power on both lines is quite varied.
Moving one town to the west we watch action at Catlettsburg, Kentucky. This is where CSXT's busy Big Sandy Subdivision meets with the main line, forming a triple track railroad until reaching the yards at Russell, Kentucky!
