CSX train B770 shoves a cut of tank cars into the Verso Corporation’s Luke, MD paper mill on August 9, 2018. This line was part of the Western Maryland Railway’s Thomas Subdivision, which ran from Cumberland, MD to Elkins, WV, and is now CSX’s Thomas Sub. This line was mostly abandoned during the Chessie System era in the mid-1980s following a major hurricane and a reduction in the demand for coal. This still-active portion runs from a connection with CSX’s ex-B&O Mountain Sub at Rawlings, MD to Bayard, WV, 44.2 miles. In addition to handling traffic for the Verso (ex-WESTVACO) paper mill, B770 also handles boxcar traffic to the Finished Products Warehouse east of Westernport, MD.
