PEACH CREEK RAIL YARD


Even though this rail yard is over 100 years old they do have a modern yard office. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


There aren't many large flat places in Logan County. The C&O engineers found one of the few flat spots for their train yard. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


Peach Creek yard was originally a Chesapeake & Ohio Railway yard, and is now the property of CSX. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


There wasn't much traffic on this day, but I did see (and talk to) several personnel. I asked permission to photograph some of the yard and they told me where it was safe for me to do so and which areas to avoid. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


Looking straight through the turntable. The yard is on the right and the old repair shop is on the left. (Dec. 2017 image by author)

I'm glad I photographed this repair shop, because it is probably on borrowed time. (Dec. 2017 image by author)

At one time there was a YMCA at this yard for railroad employees, but it's gone now. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


In the background, mostly out of site, is the actual community of Peach Creek, West Virginia. (Dec. 2017 image by author)


A nice, old brick building. (Dec. 2017 image by author)
