Re: Clinchfield 40' Gondola

I believe I saw a tracks-worth cut of Clinchfield hops in a mid-50s C&O PR pix of the Kenova Ohio River barge loading facility yard next to the Traux-? dumper (naturally along with mostly C&O hops).

The Clinchfield sent most of it's Coal south to Spartanburg,SC where
it interchanged with the SAL and Southern RR's. It also interchanged
Coal loads with N&W at St. Paul, VA, C&O at Elkhorn City, KY,
Southern at two other points. Johnson City, Tn and Marion, NC. A lot
of C&O coal moved south from Elkhorn City via Cliinchfield trains.

site) I would greatly appreciate it. I'd like to have it completelycan
