So that's how the NYC got into West Virginia? Interesting. 😁

Thanks Doug. Ralston as the builder makes sense given they were an online industry of the T&OC (a close relation to the K&M). 

This photo is the most modern lettering I’ve seen for the K&M, which caught my eye.

A couple of 50 ton gons apparently being unloaded at the the Columbus State Hospital (aka the Central Ohio Hospital for the Insane).
