On the Saltville Branch, a N&W train crew could turn their motive power on the Mathieson plant wye track located about a mile west of the N&W/ MAW interchange yard, and head back back toward Glade Spring with the locomotives pilot headed in the right direction. On the famed Abingdon Branch, the train crew would turn their locomotives on the wye located at the town of West Jefferson, NC.
