Subject: Request for MCP info for NS in VA & WV


I am planning a trip to the western portion of
Virginia and the southern portion of West Virginia
next month.  The area covered is encompassed by the
cities of Radford, Bristol, Norton, Williamson, 
Mullens, and Bluefield.

There have been a few Advanced Train Control System
(ATCS) id's made in the Bluefield and Radford areas,
but I would appreciate any MCP files for this
territory.  An attempt will be made to also cover the
CSX Kingsport sub between Erwin TN and St Paul VA.  If
anyone has any Kingsport sub MCP info, that would also
be handy.

Please send  files directly to me at mark_landgraf

Hello, Mark:

You'll be coming down Interstate 81 to reach the
points you've mentioned southwest of Roanoke.  When
you get to Winchester, Virginia, take a break and head
seven miles east to Boyce.  It is two miles north of
the intersection of Highways 340 and 50-17.  If it is
a weekend and I know you're coming, I'll be sure to
show you the station.

Good day and have a safe trip,
