Abe:I believe Jimmy is correct. Until Duke Power's Belews Creek plant wasconstructed, the Winston District was single-track, ABS with 20-some sidingsaveraging about 3500 feet -- too short to chamber unit coal trains. After trafficcontrol was installed, there were two passing sidings between "JK" andNorth Winston. Yes, the other passing sidings remained (for a while), butthe timetable noted that they were not to be used for meeting trains.
Incidentally, the Durham District had been Manual Block, until Carolina
Power & Light's Hyco plant came on line. H. Bundy
