​For the longest time, there was a house in the yard at Christiansburg that
was a section foreman house. It was adjacent to where the Kingston Branch
heads up along Depot Street.

​It was possible to stay in a section foreman's house in Abingdon -- I
believe the former bed and breakfast was put up for sale since it no longer
shows up on any listings.
