-A mile or so south of the Route 112 exit, I-77 crosses over
Jug Neck, a reverse curve of 12 degrees with a speed limit
of 25 MPH. No.4 Eng 101 derailed there in 1918.  J.A. Pilcher
calculated the overturning speed to be 57 MPH.  No. Jug Neck
isn't found in timetables nor the N&W Station book, but it has
a reputation of being the point where runaway coal from
Bluefield's East Yard derails.                      Harry Bundy
