Deepwater Extension in Raleigh County
The Deepwater railway has brought condemnation proceedings in Raleigh county for a right of way up Piney from Soak Creek. The extension will be known as the Piney Creek extension of the Winding Gulf branch of the Deepwater Railway Company.
It will start at the mouth of Soak creek, where the Winding Gulf branch is now located and have a distance of seven miles up Piney.which will open up a field that is now being exploited by the Chesapeake and Ohio.
The outlet of the branch will be by Winding Gulf fork and Slab Fork of Guyan river, tapping the main line at Mullens.
