Gordon: The N&W ran commuter trains in Portsmouth, basically Sciotoville to
Portsmouth based on old Scioto Valley Ry schedules. In Cincinnati, the N&W
ran commuter trains from Batavia to downtown Cincinnati based on old
Cincinnati & Eastern schedules that were continued through the Ohio &
Northwestern and Cincinnati, Portsmouth & Virginia days. These lasted only
until about 1920-1921.

Where the heck Hearon is, I couldn't tell you.

Portsmouth, O., Dec. 3. -- A Norfolk and Western passenger train came in
collision at Hearon today with a commuter train taking a hundred people to
work. Several passengers will die and many are reported seriously injured.

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

December 4, 1903

[Does anyone know where Hearon was? What "commuter train" did the N&W
operate? Finally, I did not see any follow-up articles in the Bluefield
newspaper about this accident. Strange!]
