Dave Nelson notes:

"1957 - Longest and heaviest train (500 coal cars, 4 miles long, 42,000
tons) hauled by Norfolk and Western Railroad between Iager, West Virginia
and Portsmouth, Ohio".

I believe one of the N&W books described this operation which was...as I recall...an experiment. I'll do some research on it if no one else has the info.
