The N&WHS Pocahontas Division does a pretty decent job on it...

The line runs from Devon on the Pokey to Richlands on the Clinch Valley via two other branches, the Dismal Creek Branch and Big Creek branch. There are no through trains, but I suppose it could be possible, but grades favor loads going out the Pokey from the Buchanan Branch and out the CV line from the Dismal Creek and Big Creek branches. The line(s) are signaled.
